Calathea plants are also commonly known as the ‘Cathedral’, ‘Peacock’ or ‘Zebra’ plant due to their interesting leaf patterns and tropical origins. The Tortoiseshell, also known as 'Calathea Medallion', takes its name from the beautiful brush-effect pattern upon its leaves. Pet-friendly and adaptable to medium light, this plant is a great all-rounder for the house. As the Calathea likes humid conditions, keep it rested on wet pebbles inside the pot or alternatively, mist daily so that it retains its moisture.

Calathea plants will thrive in a well-lit spot without direct sunlight, although a small amount of daily sun is good (avoid mid-afternoon sun). Water twice weekly in spring and summer or when soil is dry and reduce in the winter to every 7-10 days. Do not overwater. Give your plant food every two weeks in summer and half during winter months. Calathea plants also like their leaves to be wiped with a damp cloth to rid them of dust.
