Winnie, a Calathea White Fusion, is one of the hardest to come by members of the Calathea family.
Every leaf Winnie displays looks like a hand-painted piece of artwork. She has dark green leaves with bright white marbled variegation, topped off with a pink-purple underbelly. Winne does require a bit of extra care, but it's soooo worth it!
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!
Winnie, Calathea White Fusion - Small
Winnie prefers bright indirect light to partial shade, without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight wouldn’t go a miss.
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
