We love this extra-large variegated house plant for its amazing colours! Calathea Roseopicta Medallion is the classic variety, Medallion foliage is like a disco! The dark green leaves are variegated with a wide variety of red pinks, silvers and greens. The backs of the leaves are dark purple, adding to the excitement!
Originating in Brazil, Calathea Medallion is perfect as a taste of the tropical rainforest - and also as a part of any forest bathing experience. You can enjoy the benefits of the rainforest inside your own home and feel the power that houseplants can have on psychological health and wellbeing.
You may be lucky enough to get flowers as in its natural habitat this great big leaf house plant has beautiful flowers - we can’t guarantee flowers but they are beautiful when they come!
You may see it in the pictures of magazines - it’s very distinctive. Imagine how it will look next to your sofa in a wonderful planter! It really does add a definite tropical flavour to a room which is always welcome particularly when it’s cold outside!
As a bonus, Calathea Roseopicta Medallion is fine if you have pets! It’s sometimes tricky to find houseplants that are suitable if you have cats and dogs - many of them can be toxic if eaten. However, this plant is fine! If you’d like to find out more about houseplants that are suitable if you have pets, have a look at our pet-safe collection on the home page.
