Care

Light

As an understory plant, Calathea thrive in moderate indirect light. Calatheas will not tolerate bright direct sunlight for very long. However, very low light conditions will slow down the growth of the plant and increases the chance that overwatering will occur since the plant will be using less water.

Water

Calathea prefer consistently moist soil, however their roots will not tolerate standing water. When repotting, it is important that the soil and new pot is well-draining. If the soil is too dry, leaves will respond by curling and becoming crisp.

Care

Humidity is important for this plant to thrive, so we recommend misting this plant often or implementing a pebble tray for added humidity. Calathea will benefit from being fertilized monthly spring through summer. When fertilizing, we recommend diluting a general houseplant fertilizer by about half. Calathea can be propagated through root division. The leaves should be wiped down monthly with a damp cloth to keep all dust off and have the leaves looking nice and shiny.
