I'm mad about mist, if you mist me regularly I'll love you forever!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


Everything in moderation is my motto, so I like to be watered little but often, keeping my soil moist.

About Lil' Orbifolia Prayer Plant

If massive, beautifully patterned foliage is your jam - then the Calathea Orbifolia will certainly be a plant right up your street. Best of all, you can actually see the journey your Lil' Calathea Orbifolia takes as its leaves grow to an outstanding 30cm wide. Although this plant is known to be a fast grower, patience will likely be required until you can show off just how big your bundle of joy’s leaves have got to friends and family.

When it comes to showing off your baby Calathea Orbifolia, you can rest easy knowing that this plant will thrive whatever the sunlight conditions are. So your Lil' Prayer Plant will love any room, regardless of whether it is shaded or is full of bright, indirect light. To make sure you are on track for your baby plant to end up with amazing leaves that make up for nearly one-third of the total height of this plant (max height - 1m), you will need to know the Calathea's care requirements.

Your Lil' Calathea Orbifolia absolutely loves moisture in the air so misting on a regular basis is a must. It is also a fan of regular watering but make sure you do so on a little but often routine so it never dries out or ends up with too much water sitting in its pot. This plant also likes to stay warm so make sure your new plant stays between 18 to 23°C and never drops below 15°C.
