Calathea rufibarba


Rufibarba might not be as pretty as its brothers and sisters when it comes to color, but it has so much more character with its fuzzy leaves. I absolutely love this plant and have one in my office at all times........ i just can't keep my hands off the fuzzy leaves (yes, I'm weird and I know it!)

For optimum results Tropical conditions are preferred but the plants can be grown as a houseplant indoors with some TLC, just remember Calathea LOVE humidity. We grow these in batches, depending on the time of the year, plant size will vary.
