Comment
Calathea (scientific name: Calathea) is an endemic species of Costa Rica and Nicaragua, which is a non-cold-resistant and heat-resistant evergreen perennial of the family Caraceae. The plant height is 30 to 100 cm, and leaves are beautiful so it is used as a plants plant. Add flower stalks to the tip of flower stalks extending from the base of the leaves. A part of the leaf called a bract is dense and looks like a flower in the flower, but the actual flower is a small thing to peek through between the bracts. Since ordinary Kalatea flowers are not so beautiful to the left, they are not for ornamental use. Sunshine likes the bright shade. There are about 150 different varieties in Caratea.
Calathea warscewiczii is a kind of Caratea and originated in Central and South America such as Costa Rica. Leaves are velvet-like and dark green colored places contain light yellow feather patterns. Flower and calyxia are light yellow and feel like a soft cream.
