Calathea was brought to Europe by the conquistadors: they were struck by its leaves, which resemble either patterned wings of butterflies, or the motley plumage of outlandish birds.

Today, calathea is grown in room culture almost all over the world, despite the fact that superstitious people attribute very unpleasant properties to it. But no one knows how much truth is in these tales.

If you create the necessary conditions for her and provide good care, calathea can live in the house for many years, and every evening you will have the opportunity to observe the solemn ritual of arrowroots: leaves rising up and folding in a prayer gesture.
