Super rare white flowering calathea!

Calathea platystachys is a rare rattleshaker type calathea not often seen in cultivation. Large luuminous white flowers are produced twice a year. We are offering this for sale for the first time and have limited numbers. It is not particularly difficult to grow and flowers well in pots. It grows well in a tropical climate outside inground but we can't say how it would go outside in a subtropical climate.

You are purchasing an established small plant in a 100 mil pot.


Growing Conditions well drained rich soil protected bright light (but not full sun) position in the tropics. Will flower in a pot for other climates.
Flowering Season spring summer
Max Size 1 1/2 m
Origin -

SKU 5604
