Olga, a Calathea Sanderiana Ornata or Pin-Stripe Calathea, is one of the larger members of the family. She has dark green, waxy leaves with white-pink stripes that almost look as if they’ve been hand painted on. If you’re lucky, Olga will even show off little white flowers!
Native to the rainforests of South America, the Calathea, Prayer Plant, and Maranta families, have unique leaf movements whereby they actually raise and lower their leaves from day to night as if getting ready for bed! And, if that wasn’t impressive enough, they’re also great at purifying the air!
Olga, Calathea Ornata - Large
Olga prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
