Native to the Tropical Americas, the Rufibarba is a gorgeous plant that has very distinctive slim leaves that are a lush deep green on top and a dark purple underneath. This plant gets its common name, Velvet Calathea, from the fuzzy texture of the underside of its leaves. Not only does this plant look special, it is also great at purifying the air.

Light conditions: position in a warm area in bright but indirect light. 
Neediness: enjoys a humid environment so regular misting is important. Occasionally dust or wipe leaves with a damp cloth to help keep pores clear.
Watering: avoid overwatering and aim to keep soil moist but not soggy. Do not allow the soil to dry out completely. Reduce the amount of water given during the winter months.
Ideal location: bathrooms, kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms and studies
Rate of growth: average
Temperature: this plant can be kept at normal room temperature, not below 15c and avoid draughts.
Pets: this plant is safe around pets.
Sizing: Small: W12cm x H45cm, Large W19cm x H75cm
Also known as: Velvet Calathea

As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but we sleep better at night. Head to our delivery page, for the full lowdown.

    Returns

    If you'd like to return a living item, let the team know within 30 days by emailing hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk 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!
