Indoor Care Tips –  For a happy calathea, water 1-2 times weekly, or when the top few inches of soil is dry. Calatheas prefer to be consistently damp, however they do not like being overwatered. Calatheas thrive in filtered bright to medium indirect light, however some are also able to thrive in lower light environments. Calatheas are big fans of humidity, and will often tell you if they crave more humidity by developing crispy brown spots on the edges of their leaves. If you don’t have a humidifier, grouping plants together is a common remedy.

Available in a simple modern ceramic pot (our pots do not have drainage holes at their base). We keep the plastic inner container to increase the plant’s humidity and to maintain drainage. Please select container size and color.
