Size Guide

Not only does this Calathea have the iconic night-and-day leaf movement, but also changes colors! The Calathea Majestica ‘Whitestar’ produces dark green leaves with white and pink pinstripes, which turn all-white when the leaf reaches maturity. When cared for properly, Calathea Whitestars can grow up to 3 feet tall, making them a great choice as a floor-plant to spruce up boring corners!

  • FAQ about Calathea Whitestar:
    • How do you care for a Calathea Whitestar?
      • Humidity and soil are two important aspects of Calathea Whitestar care. Place your plant near a humidifier or mist it daily. The soil you choose should keep your Calathea Whitestar moist, but not soggy; meaning, it should have good drainage. Mix two parts potting mix with one part perlite, and one part orchid bark. Water only when the topsoil is crumbly, but cool, to the touch.
    • Calathea Whitestar vs. Vittata: What’s the difference?
      • One of the easily identifiable differences is that the Calathea Whitestar has matte-purple leaf backs, while the Vittata has plain green undersides.
    • Calathea Whitestar vs. Ornata: What’s the difference?
      • While both sport a stripy appearance, the Ornata’s background is much darker green (almost black) when compared to the Whitestar’s perky green.
    • How many types of Calathea are there?
      • There are 12 types (species) of Calathea with over 300 cultivars total. What does this mean? The Calathea Majestica ‘Whitestar’ is a good example: within the species (parent) Calathea Majestica, there are several cultivars (kids), with Calathea Majestica ‘Whitestar’ being one of them. All the “kids” share similar traits and have similar care requirements.
    • What comes in the box?
