Calathea Roseopicta 'Rosy' Crimson Pink Prayer Plant
This one has sold out so many times, maybe it's those perfect Crimson leaves. . This Calathea Roseopicta 'Rosy' (sometimes spelled Rosie or Rosey) adds color to any houseplant collection with gorgeous bright pink magenta leaves and contrasting edges that are deeper.
New leaves start light pink with a green tint and deepen as they mature. If this plant doesn't get sufficient humidity, its edges will start to brown a bit; although it will be perfectly healthy, that damage is irreversible. Regular misting helps keep that issue at bay. Calathea's are one of our most loved plants; they are known as the Prayer Plants and are a bit temperamental, needing the right mixture of humidity and indirect lighting
Available in the following packaging based on your preference:
- Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 6-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
- Selene Planter - Porcelain 6-inch pot ceramic marble planter with drainage hole and matching rose gold ceramic tray. The planter measures: 7.5" x 6.5" x 6.5" and weighs approximately 3.7 lbs. We recommend placing your plant inside the nursery pot to make it easy to water and transplant.

I can not believe how carefully packaged my plant was! It came in a zipper tote (that I can’t wait to use for other things) and was so well packaged and cared for despite being shipped across many states. The rosy looks so healthy and beautiful!
Excellent service and packaging from Verdant Lyfe as always. My new Calathea Rosy arrived happy, perfectly packed, and very obviously well-cared for! 💚🪴
I highly recommend Verdant Lyfe! My plant arrived in perfect shape, great size, color & packing!
Oh I love ❤️ my Rosy she fit right in with my collection of the Calatheas. I just want to hug them so bad it’s not funny. I don’t think they would like a hug, so I shall go spray them and just watch them again. That’s as close to a hug as I can get.
