This plant is characterized by its long, narrow leaves with a velvety texture and dark green colour on top, and a deep purple underside. The leaves have a unique feather-like appearance due to the fine hairs that cover them. Calathea rufibarba is known for its ability to close its leaves at night and open them again in the morning, making it a fascinating addition to any indoor plant collection.
