Calathea roseo picta, a short houseplant that produces white and purple flowers. It is greatly admired for its exceptional ornamental foliage instead. Large, elliptical to somewhat orbicular leaves are held on short reddish-brown petioles. Leaves are glossy and colored dark green with a distinctive rose-colored midrib and an irregular feathered ring of the same rosy color between the margin and midrib. Leaves underside is purple.
Recieved this plant this afternoon. Was extremely anxious to get it. It arrived in damn good shape. Just a suggestion to anyone that has house plants, USE Eleanor's VF-11 plant food. This stuff is terrific.
