This stunning Calathea is a cultivar of the Calathea Oranata, This explains why it looks so similar to the Pinstripe Calathea. What sets this beauty apart is that besides its unique, yellow pinstripes is its vivid array of yellow, light, and dark green colors. This adds a lot of dimension to its foliage, giving it a stylish, upscale look. It’s the perfect plant for an office setup.
Light – This plant fares well in a spot with lots of bright, indirect light. To keep their patterns and colors as vivid as you possibly can, you’ll want to avoid exposing this plant to direct sunlight. Doing so may cause their leaves to fade in color and scorch their leaves.
Water – Getting the watering right is what is the key to keeping your Calathea “Beauty star” happy and healthy. They like to keep their soil moist but never soggy. Check if the top inch of your soil is dry, if it is, it’s time to give your plant a drink.
These plants are native to rainforest surfaces which means that they need a lot of humidity to thrive. Place their pot on top of a tray full of pebbles with a little bit of water, this is where they will get their source of humidity. You can also mist their leaves in the morning and allow their soil to dry.
Growth – With proper care, the Calathea Beauty Star can grow up to 2-3 feet tall.
