- Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Calathea elliptica is a species of the genus Calathea that comprises of about 300 species and many cultivars and hybrid that are popularly grown for their exquisitely colored and patterned foliage. ‘Vittata’ is an attractive horticultural cultivar with a moderate growth rate.
- It is a low rosette herb with evergreen, leathery, glabrous and simple leaves that are elliptical in shape and up to 30 cm long and 13 cm wide.
- The upper surface of leaves is medium green and attractively marked with white lines running parallel to the lateral veins. The underside is light green. Its downy petioles or stems, emerging from rhizomatous roots are of varying heights, reaching up to 35 cm tall.
- Like many species of the Marantaceae family, Calathea elliptica ‘Vittata’ has the characteristic feature of folding up their leaves at dusk to dawn by means of the tiny geniculum, an angular knee-like joint connecting it to the petiole, resembling hands put together in prayer, hence the other common name, Prayer Plant.
- To keep plant tidy, cut off brown and withered leaves, together with petioles and spent flower heads if any. It likes to be pot-bound, so only repot when the need to propagate arises. It does not tolerate dryness in the air and requires high humidity to prevent browning of leaf margins, hence mist it regularly to maintain humidity as well as to keep it dust-free.

"Came in perfect condition--thank you!"
"Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."
"This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"
"Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"
"This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
