With distinctive markings, it's clear where this purrfect plant gets its name. Besides being gorgeous to look at, it's hailed for its air-purifying qualities. Its vibrant green colouring is said to trigger an evolutionary response that makes you feel healthy, too.

Place the Calathea Leopardina in your bedroom and enjoy watching as it opens its leaves in the morning and then closes them at night. No wonder it has gained itself the nickname of the living plant.

The Calathea Leopardina is a member of the Marantaceae family and originates from the rainforests of Brazil, so it is used to tropical conditions, enjoying warmth and humidity. Give it a mist to help replicate its' natural environment.

    If you'd like to return a living item, let the team know within 30 days by emailing or live chat if online. Please attach a photo of the faulty or damaged plant. Other items can be returned for a refund within 30 days as long as they're unused and in re-saleable condition.

    In short, if anything isn't right with your order we'll sort it. 

    Your plants have not only been packaged by humans (we’d like to find a robot that could beat our packaging skills) but by our in-house team of plant lovers who have lovingly prepared your order.

    If you’re not happy with your plants, let us know within 30 days, by contacting us via live chat, email or phone and a friendly member of our team will do their absolute best to rectify anything that's gone wrong.

    It's not just the plants that we care about though, we're pretty proud of our market leading (sustainable) packaging too. We’ve created a family of transport boxes with handles and where possible use our 'anti-roll' device which prevents the plant from travelling around should the box be inadvertently tipped upside down during transit.

    Things occasionally go wrong, but we'd like to assure you we're on hand help!
