Calathea Rufibarba || has gorgeous and unique foliage (its furry!) hence the nicknames such as “the fuzzy/ furry feather Calathea,” “velvet Calathea,” “furry Calathea,” and many more. Unlike most Calathea varieties, this plant is more subtle when it comes to patterns and definitely the easiest of the Calatheas to care for. Calathea's appreciate added humidity from a humidifier, placing pebbles or river stones on its water tray and/or regular misting.
