Just like fruit & veg, plants come in all shapes and sizes. Some might not come top of a beauty contest, but they'll still put a smile on your face for years to come. Our Perfectly Imperfect Plants are exactly that. They might be a strange shape or have the odd mark, but they're still beautiful. No matter which way these plants grow, or the marks they show, they're still as healthy as every other plant we sell.

 

What are my imperfections?

  • I lost a few leaves in transit, so I'm a little bare
  • Don't worry, I've got new growth - I'm a fighter!
  • Some of my leaves have a few marks
  • As I'm not 'perfect', I can't be returned, and I'm not covered by a guarantee 

 

Barbara, a Calathea Rufibarba or Velvet Calathea, is a sister to Ben, a Calathea Blue Grass. Both Barbara and Ben share the same unique velvety layer that makes them soft to the touch and offers protection. Barbara has red stems, deep blue-green leaves, and a dark purple underbelly.

 

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!

  • Barbara 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

Plant care basics

Placement

Place your plants in a spot where they'll thrive & not just where they'll look good - you won't regret it!

Water

Stick your finger 2 inches into your plants soil, and if it's dry give it a drink - if not, hold off on the water.

Feed

Plants get hungry too! In spring & summer feed your plants every 2-4 weeks! Back off during Autumn & Winter.
