Calathea rufibarba 'Elger grass'
Sleeping beauty
A sleeping beauty. That is the Calathea 'Elger grass'. The Calathea points its leaves upwards in the evening. The leaves re-open in the morning. Then the pointed shape and glossy green of the leaves can be seen once more.
This jungle plant needs high humidity. That is why we spray the leaves at least once per week. This prevents the leaf edges from drying out. The Calathea likes moderate sunlight, so this plant should not be placed in full sun. Always keep the soil moist, without letting the plant stand in water.

How to plant the Calathea in a pot?
This houseplant is delivered in a standard growers pot. It’s best for the growth of the Calathea to plant it in a decorative planter. Select a pot that is at least 20 percent larger than the growers pot.
Cover the bottom of the decorative planter with a layer of potting soil. Does the decorative pot have a hole? Then start with a layer of hydro grains, so the water can drain away. The Calathea should be 1 to 2 cm below the rim. Remove the growers pot and place the plant in the middle of the decorative pot. Fill the pot with fresh potting soil and press it down slightly.

How to take care of the Calathea?
The Calathea is a real jungle plant you have to water regularly. Try to keep the soil slightly moist and check this every now and then by pressing your finger into the soil. The plant should certainly not be standing in a layer of water.
Good air humidity of 60 to 70 percent is also important. Otherwise, the leaf edges may dry out. When the air is dry, spray the leaves once or twice a day. Also make sure the Calathea remains in partial shade.

Extra+

If you take good care of the Calathea, the plant will take good care of you too! With its large leaves, it converts contaminated substances in your home into oxygen. Solvents in your furniture are released into the air. Too high a concentration of such gases can cause headaches, for example. The Calathea reduces the risk of Sick Building Syndrome.
