Calathea Rufibarba

We’re celebrating all things beautiful and British, with our range of UK grown, 97% peat free plants. Sourced from family-run growers based in Chichester, where they dedicate over 5 acres of land to growing potted plants.
Not only is peat free a better choice for the environment, but it's also better for your plants! Helping support growth and aid water retention - what more could you ask for?

Native to the Tropical Americas, the Rufibarba is a gorgeous plant that has very distinctive slim leaves that are a lush deep green on top and a dark purple underneath. This plant gets its common name, Velvet Calathea, from the fuzzy texture of the underside of its leaves. Not only does this plant look special, it is also great at purifying the air.

This plant is grown in a peat-free medium, so you may find that the top soil tends to dry out a little faster - but don't worry, just use your finger and test to see if the top 2-3 inches of soil are still moist, to avoid overwatering. You'll also want to treat your plant to fertiliser during growing season, as you won't find the same nutrients in this mix as you'd find in traditional soil.
