aka Goeppertia Picturata 'Argentea'

Height: 65m
Nursery Pot: 17cm
Pot in picture: Ebbi Velvet 20x20cm (sold separately)

Light: Instant jungle-vibe with her gorgeous foliage! This Brazilian native likes a bright and warm home. Too much direct sun will scorch her leaves, so keep an eye. 

Water: Little and often is key for this beauty. Check on her weekly and if the top few inches feel dry to the touch, then it's time for a little drink. Less water is needed during the winter months. Regular misting is a must or a tray of pebbles to increase humidity. Goeppertia's or Calatheas also prefer rain or filtered water. Alternatively cooled boiled water. Our tap water contains chemicals that they do not like. 

Height: She can grow up to 60cm with the right TLC. She's nyctinastic which means that she raises and lowers her leaves according to whether it's day or night

PM tip: Watering is crucial for a happy plant, with root rot being a common issue. Under-watering symptoms include crispy or distorted new growth and curled leaves. Over-watering symptoms include rapidly yellowing leaves, leaf spot disease, and stem collapse. 

She's a non-toxic and pet-friendly houseplant.
