Water once a week or when dry, try to keep soil evenly moist, but not wet.
Calathea thrive best in brightly lit rooms, though away from direct sunlight rays that can potentially scorch or burn the leaves. Will tolerate low light levels, though may not thrive.
EASE OF CARE
Trim any yellowing or brown foliage. Rotate plant one quarter turn once a week to promote even growth.
Calathea are related to the maranta or "prayer plant" and the leaves tend to "close up" as dusk approaches and "reopen" as daylight breaks.
ADD A POT
Choose from our modern mix of decorative containers. Find a style that works for you whether light and delicate or bold and modern.
Find a pot that will work for the plant size you've selected. Tabletop pots are for plants 6" or smaller and Floor pots are for plants 8" or larger.
Most pots do not have drainage, so they can be kept in their grower's pot, or they can be planted using a light soil (like cactus) with a 1" base of pebbles in the bottom of the pot.
Pots for plants in 2", 4" or 6" grower's pots.
Pots for plants in 8", 10", 12" or 14" grower's pots.
