Calathea is a special, highly-decorative houseplant with colorful, variegated foliage.
It is a houseplant that really purifies the air, so it is a true eye-catcher in every interior that also makes a contribution to a better and healthier indoor climate.
Calathea is also special for another reason: it closes its leaves at night and opens them again in the morning! This is the reason why Calathea is also called the ‘Living Plant’. The plant owes this ability to a small ‘joint’ between the leaf and stem. Light moves the joints and, as a result, Calathea’s leaves open and close – which is sometimes accompanied by a rustling sound.
