Calathea vittata is a gorgeous tropical foliage plant with a low-growing habit. This decorative Calathea has elongated, pointy dark green leaves with light green, elliptic stripes. As a typical Calathea, C. vittata too earns its nickname as ‘living plant’ because it closes or rises its leaves at night and uncurls or lowers them again in the morning. Calathea vittata is native to tropical areas of South America, where it grows as an evergreen perennial in the shady, damp understories of rainforests. It makes for a compact and easy houseplant that doesn’t need a lot of space. Calathea vittata is commonly known as Goeppertia vittata, Calathea elliptica vittata, Pinstripe plant. Evanthia has Calathea vittate starting material available all year round, as tissue culture young plants. Ask our team for the Calathea cultivation manual for commercial production.
