A slightly different Calathea vs the usual dark green, these have a stunning bright white colour over the leaves, making quite a statement in the home.
Most of the Calathea varieties prefer fairly bright, but indirect sunlight. They will tolerate low light rooms, but the plant may experience slightly wilted leaves and a slower growth rate. Ideal place is close to a window or in a well lit room.
Try not to dry out the soil to much, or the Calathea whitestar will start to wilt. Keep the soil constantly moist, but be sure not to overwater. Allow plenty of drainage to stop the plant sat in stagnant water.
You can see fairly good sizes of these, with some happy specimens growing up to around 120cm tall.
