How to care
Light: In its natural habitat the Calathea dwells in forest areas shaded by trees without direct sunlight, which is why a bright but shaded spot within a warm greenhouse or conservatory suits them very well. Anywhere else indoors just needs to be bright without direct sunlight.
Water: During the growing season water, the plant thoroughly and keep the soil moist (remember this plant loves moisture). When it’s winter growing slows down or stops, reduce watering and you can allow the topsoil to become slightly dry between each watering. If you can – use tepid rain or distilled water and avoid cold hard water.
