Scientifically known as Calathea leopardina, this captivating plant is a true masterpiece of nature's design. Hailing from the lush rainforests of South America, particularly Brazil, Calathea leopardina boasts striking foliage adorned with intricate patterns resembling the rosettes of a leopard. Its scientific name is derived from the Latin word "leopardus," a nod to the stunning resemblance of its leaves to the majestic big cat's coat. As a member of the Marantaceae family, this species showcases the signature trait of its botanical relatives: the ability to fold its leaves upward at night, revealing contrasting hues on the underside—a captivating phenomenon known as nyctinasty. With its stunning appearance and intriguing behavior, Calathea leopardina is a captivating addition to any indoor jungle, sure to delight plant enthusiasts and nature lovers alike.

Essential Tips and Tricks for Thriving Calathea Plants


Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur. 

Sun: Indirect

Calathea Leopardina thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can scorch its leaves and cause damage.

Light: Medium - Bright

This plant prefers bright, indirect light. Place it near a window where it can receive filtered sunlight or in a well-lit room without direct exposure to the sun's rays.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Calathea Leopardina when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure adequate drainage to prevent water accumulation, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity: High

Calathea Leopardina prefers high humidity levels. Create a humid environment by misting the leaves regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby. You can also use a humidifier to maintain optimal humidity levels.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Calathea Leopardina is considered non-toxic to pets, making it safe to have around cats and dogs. However, it's always best to monitor your pets' interactions with plants and keep them away from nibbling on foliage to prevent any potential digestive issues.

Pro Tip

To prevent the tips of the leaves from browning, use distilled or filtered water to avoid mineral build-up in the soil. Additionally, consider grouping your Calathea Leopardina with other humidity-loving plants or placing it in a bathroom to benefit from naturally higher humidity levels. Regularly misting the leaves can also help maintain its lush appearance and vibrant foliage.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
