photo taken at the National Aquarium in Baltimore, in the Rain Forest room.

Any ideas? I think (again) it's from the maranta family.

Are the leaves reddish unerneath - I think the common name is Peacock plant. The latin starts with a c, but can't think of it.

Yep - Calathea, that's it!

Looks like a Prayer Plant - Maranta leuconeura or it could be a species of Calathea
