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

Care tips

  • The Rosastar needs little water but it is important that it is given regularly. The temperature must remain between 15 and 25 degrees Celsius (59 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit).
  • The plant loves shadow and is, therefore, suited to dark corners.
  • Adding plant food in the water every fortnight is very beneficial to the colour of the leaves.
