Light: Instant jungle-vibe with her gorgeous bright white stripes and pinky foliage! She likes a bright and warm home. Too much direct sun will scorch her leaves, so keep an eye. Avoid cold rooms, as she won't like that.
Water: Little and often is key for this beauty. Check on her weekly and if the top few inches feel dry to the touch, then its time for a little drink. Less water is needed during winter months. Regular misting is a must or a tray of pebbles to increase humidity.
Height: She can grow up tp 2ft with the right TLC. If some leaves begin to look damaged/crispy overtime, don't be afraid to snip them off. Removing damaged/old leaves can help promote new growth. Just cut them off at the stem.
PM tip: Watering is crucial for a happy Calathea, with root rot being the main issue. Under-watering symptoms include crispy or distorted new growth and curled leaves. Over-watering symptoms include rapidly yellowing leaves, leaf spot disease, and stem collapse.
They also prefer rain or filtered water. Alternatively cooled boiled water. Or tap water which you've let sit for a few hours. Our tap water contains chemicals that they do not like.
