An occasional spray of mist is my beauty secret to looking fabulous!


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


Keep it consistent, once the top two inches of soil are dry, water me so I keep looking my best.

About Lil' Vittata Prayer Plant

In the jungle, the mighty jungle the Calathea Vittata sleeps tonight... Ok, so it's not as catchy as the original, but this Lil' Prick does love a jungle environment and it even sleeps at night! The Lil' Calathea Vittata comes from the South American rainforest so it thrives in jungle-type environments - this doesn't mean you need to go mad buying tonnes of plants to make your home resemble a rainforest, but it also doesn't mean you can't do that either if you wish. We love an excuse to buy more plants!

Replicate its environment by misting it frequently and watering it little and often. If it doesn't get enough water its leaves may curl. However, don't be worried if it appears to fold up at night - the Calathea Vittata Elliptica is part of the Prayer Plant family so it 'sleeps' at night when there's no light. When the sun is out, place it in a spot with bright, indirect light. Although it might like the jungle, it doesn't need temperatures as hot as you might expect. Temperatures between 18-23°C (min 15°C) are best for this Lil' Calathea Elliptica. Luckily for pet owners and parents, this Lil' Prick isn't a predator, so your pets and lil' Pricklettes are safe around it.
