The stunning Calathea Medallion is arguably one of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creations. Its large, “medallion”-like leaves appear to be painted with brushstrokes of deep green and fuchsia tones, flourishing out into a bouquet of unmistakable, colorful foliage. The array of green colour throughout each leaf is stunning, which is then topped off by the deep purple underside. Also known as 'prayer plants', watch its leaves open and close at dawn and dusk. Plus, it's a mighty air purifier so it'll clean up any nasties from your room too. Light and Water As these plants are native to the rainforest, they need indirect light, warmth and humidity to grow well. If you're lacking humidity, you can replicate it by misting your plant once every few days with a spray bottle. Because of this, Medallions are massive fans of being placed in a bathroom where humidity is present on a consistent basis. Otherwise we suggest misting them often when in other rooms. This is not a drought tolerant indoor plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges.
