I purchased Callie (a Medallion Calathea) on a whim at Molbak’s Nursery about a month ago. Her coloring and largish leaves caught my eye and I picked out this planter to accentuate her purple underside. She stays in our bedroom so I can see her flap her *wings* throughout the day.

She follows a circadian rhythm to follow the sun and absorb maximum light. Her leaves move up at nighttime, and her leaves lower in the daytime. For a houseplant, she’s pretty entertaining.

I also love her ease of care. I give her medium light a few feet from an east facing window and water her (just a little) every Sunday. She lost two lower leaves when I first got her, but now she’s happy, settled, and apparently growing. I had to take these pics once I started to see the new baby! 😊
