The Shinestar is one of Valstar’s varieties, which has been produced in-house. The Shinestar has beautiful round dark leaves with a light green border. 
Calatheas are named after the Greek word for basket. The flowers (which are very slight) are arranged together resembling a basket.
The Shinestar is originally from Brazil.


We deliver this plant in the 12 and 19 centimetre pot sizes.
