Prayer plants are one of the most active houseplants you can have in your home, moving their leaves with the changing light. The Leopard Calathea is one of the more unusual varieties, with dark green, leopard-like spots on its leaves.

Calatheas do a daily dance, curling their leaves at night and then unfurling to catch the morning sun. 

_ Arrives in a 12cm nursery pot
_ Loves of high humidity 
_ Not reliant on direct sunlight 
_ An easy-care way to give your home a boost of green!

Pet Safe

Perfect if you have slightly over-curious pets that may choose to have a nibble on your plants!

Pure Water

Similar to other Prayer Plant species, the Leopard Calathea is sensitive to chemicals in tap water, which is often the cause of crispy brown leaf tips. For best results, water this plant with rain or filtered water to lower the chances of brown ends.

Easy To Propogate

When repotting, you can split off groups of stems to re-plant. Once potted up, you'll have a new plant!

Plant Bio


Native to all of South America but most commonly found in Brazil, this plant can be found in the understory, surrounded by humidity and jungle foliage, enjoying the dappled light that reaches it from the canopy above. 

The species name 'concinna' comes from the Latin word meaning 'neatly', which is likely in reference to the neat markings on its leaves. 

Part of the Marantaceae family, also known as the Prayer Plant family.

Light
: This plant grows in the understory in the wild, which often has very little direct sunlight. For best growth at home, it requires bright, indirect light. It will burn if placed in intense sunshine. 

Water: This plant prefers a consistent level of water. It is best to leave the top layer to dry out in between waterings and ensure thorough drainage so that the roots aren't saturated. 

Humidity: Thriving in highly humid environments, this plant will appreciate being grouped with other plants or given a mist every week or so.

Temperature: This plant likes warmer temperatures and will do best in environments of between 15-28°C.
