The Beautystar is one of Valstar's varieties, which has been produced in-house. The leaves are a combination of two green colours, by which the nerve colours white and light pink. In the evening the plant closes its leaves as the light fades. Calatheas are named after the Greek word for basket. The flowers are arranged together resembling a basket. The Beautystar is originally from Brasil, where it is part of the undergrowth.
