Calathea crocata



7th August 2009


My fascination with the Marantaceae goes back to the days when I still had a warm greenhouse to grow them in, and I should know better than to buy them now, but at the end of summer they turn up on the market at ridiculous prices (this was 1.99), so it is worth a try. This is the best flowering of the Calathea that are easily available and it is currently wintering in a heated propagator!
