The Calathea Leopardina has beautiful, bright green leaves with dark green stripes. It is a real beauty that easily matches with any interior. But the beautiful leaf print is far from the only notable feature of the Calathea Leopardina. The plant, for one, has very strong air-purifying properties. This means that the plant not only produces extra oxygen, but also filters harmful substances from the air.
Another special Calathea Leopardina feature is the fact that its leaves move around. A characteristic to which the plant owes its nickname “living plant”. In the morning its leaves spread open to catch the light, and in the evening they close up again. These movements are so fast that you can even hear the Calathea rustle!
The Calathea is originally from the dense tropics of South America. Since very little sunlight reaches the plant in this environment, it also prefers a relatively dark spot in your home. The perfect spot for the Calathea, which is also called “shadow plant”, is partial shade. This makes the Calathea very suitable for dark bedrooms or bathrooms, or simply for a dark corner in the living room.
The soft grey pot included with the Calathea leopardina is of our own design. It is made of the natural material cement. The pot combines perfectly with this houseplant, and forms a stylish addition to your interior.
Along with the delivery of this indoor plant you’ll naturally receive more plant care information, so you may enjoy it for as long as possible. Every plant has its own care preferences.

Keep the potting potting soil slightly moist and spray the plant regularly.
Place the plant in partial shade, clear of direct sunlight.

Plants and health:
In order for your house to become a home – a place where you can truly unwind – we believe the addition of plants to be indispensable. Plants are much more than just a nice addition to your interior; they actively break down harmful substances and turn CO₂ into oxygen. Because we believe that everyone is entitled to a beautiful and healthy living environment, we are happy to share our green must-haves with you!
Will my plants be potted before delivery?
If you purchase a plant-pot combination, they will be delivered separately. Potting our plants is very easy! You can repot a plant from the plastic growers’ pot into the pot. You might add a layer of hydro grains, which will allow room for excess water to drain. If the pot is large enough, you could also simply place the plant with the growers’ pot in it. Is the growers’ pot a bit higher than the pot? That’s an easy fix. The growers’ pot is easily removed, after which you can press down the soil a bit. Wondering you have to do the potting yourself? Well, by delivering the pot and plant separately, we can pack both extra carefully. This way, we ensure they are both delivered in a perfect condition.
Our plants are delivered fresh from the grower. They make a quick pit stop at our distribution centre, where they are carefully packaged in a plant-friendly box. After packaging, your plants are sent straight to your home!
Because plants are living products, they are never exactly identical to the pictures shown on our website. Height measurements and shapes may differ due to weather conditions, for example.
