Goeppertia / Calathea crocata (Eternal Flame Plant)
€14.99 “Price excl. VAT: €13.21”
Burgundy leaves and stunning orange flowers in summer, which can last for several months. Most Calatheas do not flower indoors, but this is an exception.
Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15°C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!). They like to be kept well watered, although this can be cut back a little in winter, and they thrive in high humidity, so either grow it in a steamy room, mist it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened shingle.
Supplied in a 14cm pot
