Calathea lutea cv Golden Cigar is a newer and rarer calathea similar to Havana Cigar but with much larger more golden flowers.

Rare in cultivation.Originally from Alan Carle's collection. While the plant growth habit is similar to Havana Cigar the flowers are much larger on this variety. They also are a more golden color which I can't seem to photograph well. I've been told it is less cold tolerant than Havana but am unsure. Well worth obtaining for collectors,cut flower growers and novice growers and anyone else in a tropical climate. Suitable for large pots.


Growing Conditions Rich moist soil. Unsure of temp range.
Flowering Season Year round flowering season.
Max Size 5m
Origin -
Temperature unsure, tropical to subtropical most likely.
SKU 110
