Plant care

☀️ Calatheas will do best in medium low light, do not allow your plant to stand in the direct sunlight, the leaves will burn.

💧 We recommend watering when the top 25% of the soil is dry, water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

🌡 Calatheas need to be maintained in indoor temperatures above 60 degrees, anything between 65-85 degrees will keep your plant happy. Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes. Like many tropical plants Calatheas prefer a spot with ample humidity, if leaf edges begin to curl or brown up, mist them with lukewarm water on a regular basis or place a humidifier near your Calathea. The bathroom and kitchen are ideal places to keep your calathea as these room tend to be more humid.

✨ We recommend you use a general houseplant fertilizer, fertilize every four weeks during the spring and summer. Make sure to apply fertilizer to damp soil-never dray as it will burn the plants’ roots. No fertilizing is necessary during the winter when the plants growth naturally slows.

☠️ The Calathea is a non-toxic plant to both humas and pets.
