About your Calathea Medallion - Part of the prayer plant family, the stunning Calathea Medallion is arguably one of Mother Nature's most beautiful creations. Its large, “medallion”-like leaves appear to be painted with brushstrokes of deep green and fuschia tones, flourishing out into a bouquet of unmistakable, colorful foliage. As a member of the Prayer Plant family, they raise their leaves at night like praying. In the evening, the leaves of calathea plants fold upright at the base of the stem, as if the plant is folding its leaves upward to pray. This process is called nyctinasty.
