Product Details

The thing we are most happy (but semi-frustrated about since it keeps our database messy) about living in Indonesia is that the farmers and botanists like to make new hybrid species. These Prayer Plant is a hybrid Goeppertia, and they are commonly mistaken as a Calathea-type. We are not so sure what is the specific name of the hybrid but we are very sure there is a combination of Goeppertia picturata ‘Vandenheckei’ and Goeppertia ‘Medallion’ snooping around.

Geeky technical talks aside, look at the pretty leaf with the striking patterns! Collect yours, here at Lively we have quite a collection of Calatheas and Goeppertia varieties to offer.
