Calathea species

This small Calathea species from Central Peru is special.  It is a small representative of it’s genus, as it stands only about 4″ tall. It possesses tear drop shaped leaves with gently undulating leaf surfaces.  The color is a simple green with no markings, but on closer inspection a slight iridescence is noticed. Simple in it’s beauty, it is nothing less than elegant.
