Calathea Plants are native to Africa, the West Indies, and Central and South America. All Calathea Plants are treasured for their large, oval, distinctly patterned, and vibrantly colored leaves. The beautiful striped leaves of a Calathea Lineata Plant grow at the end of long stems and require quite a bit of care to stay looking good. Indoors, a Calathea Lineata Plant rarely grows larger than about 2ft. wide and 2ft. tall. A Calathea Lineata Plant requires high humidity to keep its leaves from getting brown edges and is not an easy-care plant, but like many unusual houseplants, well worth the effort.
