Calathea roseopicta 'Cora' almost looks completely different than the species. It produces silvery leaves with hues of red and pink with dark green "ribs". Leaves will turn slightly more oval with age.


Like with all Calathea, C. roseopicta does not like direct sun; unless it's early morning sun. This is a clump-growing "Prayer Plant" species with round leaves, pink bands in the center, that fold up at night.
