Calathea Orbifolia is one of the largest calathea varieties. Typically these plants stay relatively small, calathea orbifolia can grow to a height of a couple feet. The leaves are large ovals topping out at nearly a foot in size, too.


But what makes the leaves so stunning isn’t necessarily just their size and shape—it’s their coloring. They are striped with a light green and silver on the top, and they have a very light and airy look.
