Calathea 'Network' - the zebra plant & brass pot combination

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: fertile: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately 45cm (including pot)

    A new addition to this family of plants which is grown for their beautiful leaves and wow! this plant is stunning. The leaves are a rich green with a bright yellow, divided up into small pieces which looks like a mosaic or a stainglass window with slightly scalloped edges. What's more, these plants are tough and resilient, so ideal for beginners or people with busy lives that want something eyecatching.

  • Home care: Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!). They like to be kept well watered, although this can be cut back a little in winter, and they thrive in high humidity, either grow it in a steamy room, mist it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened shingle.
