6" Calathea Sanguinea


We have run out of stock for this item.

Sanguinea can grow up to 5' in its native Brazil but in captivity we can expect it to reach a max of 2' to 3'. Leaves of a soft, velvety, deep green grow horizontally pointing outwards, decorated with a pale green midrib. These are "prayer" plants, gently closing their leaves upwards like praying hands, showing off their pretty red undersides. The name, Sanguinea, meaning "red colored" refers to the added surprise of sprays of brightest red flowers in the spring.

Quick Care Guide:

  • Water - Med/High (4):  Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
  • Light - Medium (3):  Plant prefers natural, diffused light. Can be placed in a spacious living room. Indirect light preferred. No direct sunlight on leaves.
  • Difficulty - Medium (3):  Not too difficult to keep happy, but does require some attention.
