Widely loved for their bold, brightly patterned foliage, calathea are found most often on the forest floor in tropical locales. This means they're able to tolerate partially shady areas in your home and are pretty forgiving. Most calathea plants' leaves will fold up during the dark hours, which reveals the colorful undersides, making them a gorgeous addition to your indoor garden no matter the hour. The Orbifolia features a streaky foliage with contrasting dark and light green coloring. If your calathea leaves begin to brown, that typically means it's being underwatered or needs a more humid environment.
