Sophia's survival guide

Closed at midnight

Just like her sisters, Sophia is a part of the Calathea Family and originates from Brazil. To be precise, Sophia is a Medallion. Her massive leaves makes her massively good at cleaning the air. Sophia is kind to pets and small children and loves long walks in the sun. With some sun and some shade she's at her best. What's truly remarkable about her is the closing of her leaves at sundown and the opening at sunrise. She welcomes the world with open leaves every day. What a great example for all of us just-one-more-minute snoozers.

What makes Sophia so special

Sophia told us she once posed to be in one of Manet's paintings. Were sceptical although why not? With a striking canopy and bag full of tricks Sophia really is quite stunning and special. When she's ready for bed she closes those beautiful leaves and when she's thirsty they curl up. So much drama! And the theatrics don't end there. Sophia is picky and will want just the right amount of water and a bright spot away from direct sunlight. Can you handle it?
