My two calatheas - for Delonix (calathea)

I know the one on the right is the medallion but not sure what the one on the left is ... had it a long time.
And yes that is a duck in the background ... just had it's morning dip in the pond!

Thanks Drc ... had to re-organize all the pots out in the courtyard for the summer conditions. The calatheas do well out there during the summer - they're mostly in the shade ... bit of morning sun! And of course the pelargoniums and torenias are all well suited to our summer outdoors.

Bernieh:

Yes, your plants look so beautiful, healthy and bright!

I think the one on the left is Calathea makoyana. : > )

Nice to be down under right now Bernieh.
Feels like the Arctic here in Yorkshire.

Definitely not the Arctic around here Jbardet! ... but it's been comfortable heat so far!

Bernieh:

Don't get used to the comfortable heat...we had the same mild weather last spring...then a hot blast came in very quickly...and stayed all summer and fall. : > )
