Plant Care
Watering

Water. Calatheas enjoy weekly waterings, allowing the top 2' of soil to dry out partially. In winter, we recommend watering less frequently to prevent overwatering and root rot. This plant is not very drought tolerant, and extended periods of dryness will cause leaf edges to brown.

Fertilizer

During the spring and summer, fertilize Calatheas with a balanced all-purpose fertilizer like a 10/10/10 on the NPK ratio (Nitrogen/Phosphorous/Potassium). This can be done on a monthly basis. If you're in doubt about when to fertilize – don't. Overfertilizing is a common and hard-to-fix problem with plants.

Light

Calathea needs sunlight for photosynthesis and produces energy for growth, but too much direct sunlight exposure will burn their leaves. Calathea is tolerant of low light conditions but prefers bright indirect light at 10,000 lux or 1,000 foot candles.

Temperature

Calathea like temperatures between 65-80 degrees and do not like cold drafts or temperatures below 55-60 degrees. HUMIDITY: Humidity is a must for a Calathea plant. Brown leaf edges may be a sign that the air is too dry.

Repotting

Repot your Calathea only when rootbound and avoid disrupting the rootball unless essential. Repot in early spring, increase the pot size by only 1-2 inches (2.5-5 cm), and use a well-draining potting mix. Add fresh mix around the plant in the new pot and water lightly after repotting.
