Eternal Flame Plant

Calathea Crocata

A beautiful addition to a shaded windowsill, this is an unusual calathea that flowers with bright orange blooms.

Like other calatheas, Eternal Flame has really luscious foliage with a metallic dark green leaf whose underside is a bronze/purple hue. The shape of the leaves is as impressive as the flower spikes themselves which last between 6-8 weeks.

It prefers soft rainwater, and gentle humidity around the leaves. An ideal spot would be a bright windowsill out of direct sunlight, although be careful of winter draughts as this could harm the plant.

The calathea crocata is however an easy plant to grow and would look wonderful in any home!
