Practically the entire Calathea genus is prized for its patterned foliage. This species is absolutely no exception! I would even argue this is one of the most well known species. All foliage is beautifully striped with pink on a purple background. The undersides of each leaf are a matte purple.
Place them in a room that has a northern or eastern exposure since they require "bright shade." If in a room that receives western or southern exposure, be sure they're at least a few feet away from the nearest window so the foliage doesn't burn. (They do grow naturally on the jungle floor, after all!) These plants also appreciate any additional humidity you're able to provide!
