The plant is known for its soft, velvety, elongated leaves that can grow up to a foot long.

Like other Calathea plants, Rufibarba prefers bright, indirect light, and a humid environment.

Care Tips for Calathea Rufibarba:

Sunlight Requirements

Calathea need plenty of diffused light. Direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings. They can tolerate some degree of shade, but the more indirect light, the finer the foliage.

Soil and Potting

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure proper root health and moisture retention. Ensure that the pot has adequate drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.


Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Misting the leaves can help maintain the required humidity.

Temperature and Humidity

Rufibarba Plants prefer warm temperatures and high humidity. In the UAE, maintaining moderate humidity levels by misting the leaves or using a humidifier is essential. Protect the plant from cold drafts.


Feed your Calathea Rufibarba Plant with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant every 4-6 weeks. This promotes healthy growth and maintains the vibrancy of its foliage.

Pruning and Maintenance

Minimal pruning is required for Calathea Rufibarba Plants. Remove any dead or yellowing leaves to maintain a tidy appearance. Regularly inspect your plant for pests and diseases and address them promptly to ensure its health.
