The Calathea Orbifolia, reclassified a Goeppertia Orbifolia, comes from Bolivia with similar features as a prayer plant.

The orbifolia is one of the largest calatheas, growing a few feet tall, with large oval leaves.

The calathea orbifolia is a little high maintenance outside of humid summer temperatures; so prepare to invest in a humidifer.

The orbifolia only needs medium light levels, making it highly adaptable.

She likes moist soil; so water whenever the top few inches of soil dries out.

Make sure to plant the calathea orbifolia in well-draining soil to avoid root rot.

She needs to be in temps no lower than 55 degrees, and love love loves humidity.

Beware of plant pests, yellowing or browning leaves, crunchy tips, and limp leaves.
