Whilst these are commonly referred to as Calatheas, the Magicstar is in fact a Stromanthe, a close relative with incredibly similar care requirements. The vibrant cream stripes on the top of the foliage contrast against the deep pink undersides.
This plant needs plenty of diffused light however direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but the better the light conditions, the more you will be rewarded by fine foliage.
Keep the soil damp at all times, but definitely do not allow the plant to sit in water or in very wet soil. Think little and often. High humidity levels are a must, so mist regular!
Recommended pot size of Ø18 +
