Calatheas are stunning tropical plants with brilliantly patterned leaves. Calathea warscewiczii is one of the most remarkable varieties, sporting exotic velvety foliage with two-toned green tops and burgundy-colored undersides.
Mature Warscewicziis are large houseplants that can grow to 3-4 feet high and wide in optimal conditions. Its soft velvety leaves feature a striking light-and-dark green fishtail pattern with solid purplish tones underneath. The plant may bear small cream-colored flower cones in season.
The Velvet Leaf Calathea is wonderfully tactile, with dark, sultry foliage that is eminently strokable. The top of each leaf is deep green, with bright green markings, while each underside is a rich purple.
