From the Calathea lineage of plants, the royal standard dons iridescent silver with dark green borders. Not only a stunner, this plant’s leaves interestingly lift and lower day and night due to a biological sunlight response. 

Size: 6" (pot diameter)

Scientific Name: Calathea roseopicta 'Royal Standard'

Common Name: Calathea Royal Standard
