Plant Features

Introducing the Color Full® Soft Kitty™ Bluegrass Calathea, a plant that captivates with its lush, deep green leaves adorned with burgundy-purple undersides. An unexpected softness graces this plant, with fine hairs delicately cloaking its leaves and petioles. As a notably taller member of the Calathea genus, it's a striking addition to any plant collection.

Please note, the Calathea rufibarba has been officially renamed as Goeppertia rufibarba, but it still holds the same captivating charm. Goeppertia rufibarba belongs to the esteemed family of prayer plants, named for their unique behavior of folding their foliage as nightfall descends.

Care Tips for Your Color Full® Soft Kitty™ Calathea

  • Light: It prefers indirect light. Too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves.
  • Water: Keep evenly moist, but not soggy. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings. If a small pot, allow just the top to dry. 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix.
  • Temperature: The ideal temperature range is 60-85°F (15-29°C).
  • Humidity: High humidity is preferred. Mist the leaves once a day if you have a dry environment.
  • Fertilization: Fertilize once per month during the growing season with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Pet Friendly: YES
  • Pests and Diseases: It is susceptible to mealybugs and spider mites. If you notice any pests, treat them with an insecticidal soap or neem oil.
  • Troubleshooting: If the leaves are turning yellow, it may be a sign of overwatering. Allow the soil to dry out more between waterings. If the leaves are curling up, it may be a sign of underwatering. Water the plant more frequently.
