Calathea in bottle, the plants with "peacock feathers"
A version of "naked root" Calathea inserted inside a glass bottle with a rustic and natural look. This plant comes from the forests of the South American Amazonia, where it grows in the shade of dense vegetation. It has a very ornamental foliage with leaves characterized by dark green designs that recall the peacock's feathers; the lower page instead presents bright colors tending to pink or purple. The result is an object with an absolutely minimal line that will allow you to admire the development of its aerial roots. An original furnishing accessory that makes this Calathea plant ideal to be placed in any environment, alone or combined with other bottles of the same collection. The effect will be truly spectacular and very decorative!
The technique with which this plant is grown is that of hydroculture, that is without the use of soil, it is an alternative system that allows the growth of plants thanks to the presence of water, which becomes the nutritious element par excellence. In this way, its care does not require great care, except to top up the water as soon as the level in the jar drops above the required level. The Calathea should be placed in a cool, illuminated area, but not exposed to direct sunlight.
