Calathea ‘Beauty Star’ is a South American native that has dark green leaves with paler green, silver, and white stripes, and purple undersides. Calatheas are popular house plants because of their variegated leaves and vivid colours. Like other members of the marantaceae family, Calathea raises their leaves in the morning and lowers them at night, giving them the common name, the “prayer plant”.
