Calatheas are a striking tropical variety of plant and are known for their bold patterned foliage. A fun fact about Calatheas is that at night, their foliage will slightly fold upwards, revealing the often colourful underside of the leaves!
Calatheas make a stunning addition, and will be a real statement plant for any plant collection. Plus they are pet friendly!

Kokedama is roughly the size of a grapefruit.
Comes complete with a coaster, full care instructions and a gift box.
Medium and bright filtered light for this beauty! Keep out of direct sun, especially in summer. Too much bright sun will cause the leaf pattern to fade.
Keep away from heating outlets. Loves humidity, so perfect for a bathroom!
Typically water when kokedama has only just dried. Do not allow to fully dry out, and do not let your kokedama stay soggy.
Brown leaf tips indicate inadequate watering, whereas too much water will cause your foliage to wilt.

HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment! Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
It is important to gently squeeze out excess water from the kokedama by pressing between two hands, on the sides towards the base. This will ensure your kokedama does not stay waterlogged which will prevent conditions such as root rot, fungus gnats and mould. As the moss and twine are natural products they are biodegradable and as such, squeezing out the excess water will prevent deterioration, prolonging the life of your kokedama.
