21” Calathea Rufibarba


With their narrow, long leaves having purple, velvety undersides, Calathea Rufibarba are among the most unusual natives of tropical Americas. Like other Calathea, these plants have been collected by plant lovers for the beauty of their leaves. Showcasing their full range of greens, greys, browns, pinks and the occasional yellows on their foilage, Calathea are perfect for areas with less than full sunlight.

Calathea Rufibarba

Among the most beautiful low light plants around, Calathea belong to the Marantaceae family, a species of flowering plants from tropical areas of America. In addition to their flowers, they are loved for their wide, green, colourful leaves.

Adopting and caring for a Calathea

Adopting: Adding a lush, well grown Calathea Rufibarba to a plant collection is a feeling only a plant parent can understand. At eplants, we bring you display-ready plants with high-quality growth, compact shape and well-formed leaves
Locating: Most prayer plants require lower light than other popular plants. Darker the leaves, lower their light requirement so locate them indoors, under shaded balconies or under the cover of other plants. Direct exposure to the sun will lead to leaf-burn and eventual loss of plant life
Potting: Calathea love moist, but not wet soil. So having a 50:30:20 mixture of coco-peat, leaf mould and sand will help them do the best
Watering: These plants dislike drying out, so water them two or three times a week. Do a finger test every other day to check if the soil is too dry. If the leaves are droopy, the plant is thirsty and asking for water. Water generously and make sure the excess water is drained
Fertilising: If your potting mix is right, Calathea do not require much fertiliser. However, nourishing them with an organic liquid fertiliser two or three times a year will help them do well. If you are using a chemical mix, ensure that it doesn’t touch the leaves or it will cause leaf-burn
In all, few plants can beat the beauty of? well-grown Calathea. The shape and colour of their leaves make them excellent foliage plants. If you are looking for an indoor plant in your home or office that thrives in low light conditions, Calathea is perfect for you. Ensure that they are not exposed to bright and direct sunlight

    Absolutely flawless. From exploring options to understanding about them, from finalizing to placing order. The entire journey was smooth and engaging. We usually get confused of which plant we should place at which area of of our home. This website allows you to understand what you are buying before you finalize!
    The care and thoughtful approach which was clearly visible when the plants reached home. They were well secured and packed with care. The package also had a letter with instructions for care and requirements for the plants ordered. Beautiful experience!

    Thankyou Eplants!
    Will keep ordering 🙂
