Frida's survival guide
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.”
Our Care App will help you after your purchase.
What makes Frida so special
Calathea White Stars 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!

Good question! We measure the height from the top of the plant to the bottom of the pot (including the pot itself).
Our app will tell you exactly when and how much to feed and water your plants. Are you already a pro in taking care of your plant? Great! The App is completely optional of course.
