Calathea concinna Freddie is a spectacular, tropical foliage plant with a upright, bushy habit and a fresh appearance. Freddie has highly contrasting light green leaves and dark green stripes. As a typical Calathea, Freddie too earns its nickname as ‘living plant’ because it closes or rises its leaves at night and uncurls or lowers them again in the morning. Calathea concinna is native to tropical areas of Brazil, where it grows as an evergreen perennial in the shady, damp understories of rainforests. It makes for an elegant and easy houseplant. Calathea concinna Freddie is commonly known as Goeppertia concinna Freddie, Zebra plant or Peacock plant, because of its significant, exotic leaf pattern. Evanthia has Calathea concinna Freddie starting material available all year round, as tissue culture young plants. Ask our team for the Calathea cultivation manual for commercial production.
