Calathea veitchiana is a decorative and air-purifying plant. It has broad leaves which are patterned with silver and green feather-like markings. The undersides of the leaves are bright purple-pink adding a bold color contrast. It flourishes best in bright indirect sunlight or filtered sunlight to partial shade. Keep your plant out of direct sunlight, because too much of direct sunlight burns the leaves of a Plant and causes the wonderful leaf hues to fade.
