Care:

The most important thing to remember with this plant is to water it regularly. Calatheas do not like to be overlooked. Keep it potted in well draining soil and position it in medium-to-bright indirect light, never in direct sunlight. While flowers are unlikely to emerge if you are keeping this Calathea as a houseplant, they are possible. Some growers choose to remove them immediately so that the plant puts energy into its colorful foliage rather than into blooms.

Description:

It is hard to share anything about this plant without using the term “pretty”. It is a very pretty and sought after plant which boasts pink foliage markings that are quite an unusual addition to most houseplant displays. "Dottie" shows off sizable, medium-green leaves with hot pink markings. The eye-catching pink design follows the margin of the leaf and creates a border of green, then pink, then green, with a bit of cream thrown in for good measure… truly artistic. There is also a prominent center line of the same pink. While Marantas are the official Prayer Plants, Calatheas are part of the same family and almost always carry that common name due to the movement of their leaves. "Dottie’s" leaves move as day to turns to night, allowing their rosy undersides to be more visible. Again, pretty!
