The Medallion Calathea has gorgeous, round foliage and a purple underbelly. Part of the calathea family, they are often called "prayer plants" because their circadian rhythm prompts them to raise and lower their leaves from day to night (called nyctinasty).


Note: Sizes are indicative of pot size, not plant size. For example: 4" pot means that the plant will come in a 4" tall by 4" wide plastic nursery pot.
