HOW TO GROW CALATHEA HOUSEPLANTs
This bold and beautiful plant requires a little love and attention than most houseplants. While it loves low to medium light, it does love higher humidity areas like a bathroom or kitchen. So make sure to keep it out of direct sun and it’s soil moist (but not soaking wet) and you’ll have a gorgeous looking plant for many years!
Calathea houseplants do well with medium light to low light. No direct sun, which will burn foliage.
Keep soil evenly moist spring through fall. Water less often in winter, allowing the potting medium to dry slightly before watering again.
Calathea houseplants love a peat moss based potting mix.
We suggest Fertilome Ultimate Potting Mix
Feed every 2 weeks spring and summer with a balanced water-soluble fertilizer, diluted by half. In fall and winter, feed monthly.
We suggest Schultz Plant Food Plus
