The Calathea Medallion is quite the looker, with its large, “medallion” like leaves, which look as if they've been painted with brushstrokes of different shades of green.
Similar to Little Red Riding Hood, the key to success with a Medallion is to get the conditions just right. It likes brightly-lit rooms but won't fare well in direct sun, the leaves will become scorched and a shadow of their former selves.
When watering, don't allow it to completely dry out, it needs to remain evenly moist. But it's also important not to overwater. It will also benefit from fertiliser once a month.
These plants can grow! So make sure to factor in plenty of space and sit back and watch it flourish.
