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.
