Dottie's survival guide

That’s because you look, but you don’t see...

At 65 Dottie is a completely new plant. She’s been prescribed medicinal marijuana for her cataracts and it’s completely opened up her mind. Dottie walks around in a world of vibrant colors, she sees her own leaves as a mix of purples and pinks. Whenever the grandchildren are over, she tells the younger ones to never stop dreaming and slips the older ones some weed cookies. It’s hard to argue with somebody who never stops smiling. Dottie can be found dressed in a mix of velvet-red robes and flowing gowns that look like they belong in a ballroom dresser room. Dottie even got caught speeding on the highway and told the officer he had a beautiful soul. She got off without a ticket.

How to care for Dottie

The Calathea Roseopicta Dottie is visually striking to say the least with dark green leaves that are beautifully contrasted against pink borders and strokes and a purple underside. Dottie needs plenty of diffused sunlight but if she’s out in direct sunlight it can cause her to lose the beautiful markings on her leaves. Plus too much sunlight makes her feel totally baked! Keep her soil damp but not enough that she sits there in water. Even when she’s got the munchies!
