Light: True to her name, with gorgeous, pink and purple leaves. She likes a bright and warm home. Too much direct sun will scorch her leaves and cause her to fade, so keep an eye.
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 it's time for a little drink. Less water is needed during the winter months. Regular misting would be beneficial, or a tray of pebbles to increase humidity. Or pop her near the shower from time to time to give her an extra boost.
Height: She can grow up 40cm to 60cm with the right TLC.
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. Our tap water contains chemicals that they do not like.
