Frida's survival guide

A work of art

She’s breathtaking! Because the white and pink stripes on their leaves look like brush strokes, Calathea White Stars are often compared to paintings. Bringing Frida home is a bit like having a living work of art—and Frida knows a little something about art. She aims to paint the most important, and tragic, events in her life as a plant: “Rootbound”, “Self Portrait of Me Being Overwatered”, and “Me and My Owner, Who Knows Exactly What They Did.”

What makes Frida so special

Calathea Vittata are low light plants, which makes them perfect for indoor growing in those less than ideal plant corners of your room. As for Frida, she expects to be treated with kindness and respect. She likes high humidity, having her leaves misted, and getting watered just enough for her soil to be moist at all times. Too much water will lead to root rot and Frida does not like wet feet, or any feet for that matter!
