Also known as a Velvet Calathea, this Calathea is native to the Amazon rainforests in Brazil. Unlike most Calathea varieties, this plant has slender leaves without patterns but with ruffled margins and tiny hairs giving it a furry look and feel. The new growth emerges a light green and as they mature, changing to a darker green with reddish tones underneath. The stems of the rufibarba are long and slender also with a dark red colouration. It is a clump forming plant like most Calatheas and will grow to a metre tall with leaves reaching 25cm long. Best kept away from bright light as the leaves will scorch.

Keep an eye out for spider mites and other common pests, make sure that your growing media is free draining to avoid root rot.
