    Description: Calathea 'Green Goddess', scientifically known as Calathea orbifolia 'Green Goddess', is a captivating tropical plant known for its large, round leaves with striking light green and silver stripes. The leaves have a silky, almost metallic sheen, adding to their lush, elegant appearance. Native to the tropical rainforests of South America, Calathea 'Green Goddess' is admired for its ability to thrive indoors, bringing a touch of natural beauty and sophistication to any space. This plant typically grows up to 12-24 inches tall and wide, making it a perfect choice for both tabletops and floor displays.

    Care Instructions:


    • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves and fade their vibrant patterns.


    • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil is dry. Use distilled or rainwater if possible, as Calatheas are sensitive to chemicals in tap water.


    • Thrives in high humidity environments. Regular misting, using a humidity tray, or placing the plant in a humid room like a bathroom can help maintain the necessary moisture levels.


    • Prefers temperatures between 65°F and 80°F (18°C - 27°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 60°F (15°C).


    • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.


    • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter when growth slows.


    • Remove any dead or damaged leaves to maintain appearance and encourage new growth. Regular pruning helps prevent disease and promotes a tidy, healthy plant.

    Styling Tips:

    • Statement Plant: Place Calathea 'Green Goddess' in a prominent spot where its large, striking foliage can be admired. Its lush, striped leaves make it a stunning statement piece in any room.
    • Shelf or Mantelpiece: Position Calathea 'Green Goddess' on a high shelf or mantelpiece, allowing its beautiful leaves to be viewed at eye level, adding a touch of greenery to elevated spaces.
    • Grouping with Other Plants: Combine with other shade-loving plants like ferns, calatheas, and philodendrons to create a diverse and visually appealing indoor garden.
    • Bathroom Decor: Utilize its love for humidity by placing it in a bathroom with ample indirect light. The steamy environment can help it thrive and add a touch of greenery to the space.
    • Modern Decor: Its unique, striped foliage fits well with modern, minimalist decor. Use a sleek, contemporary pot to complement its striking appearance.

    Calathea 'Green Goddess', with its dramatic, striped foliage and relatively easy care requirements, is a fantastic addition to any plant collection. Its exotic appearance and adaptability make it a favorite among plant enthusiasts and interior designers looking to add a touch of tropical elegance to their spaces.
