Calathea Medallion


Category: Tag:


I’m Calathea Medallion. I get my name from my medallion-shaped leaves that almost look like a painting. My deep green and burgundy colored leaves almost look painted with their unique and bold pattern. I am the perfect plant to brighten up any room. Be sure to watch my leaves move as I raise and lower my leaves from day to night to catch the sun. And great news, my leaves help purify the air in your home and I am non-toxic to be around all your furry friends.
