Planting & Care
Sunlight: Bright, indirect light, although will tolerate a greater range of lighting than some other Calatheas.
Soil: Well-draining, but moisture-retentive soil. A mix of 2/3 peat or coco-coir and 1/3 perlite is a good option.
Watering: Water thoroughly once the top inch of soil feels dry. Make sure to let the pot drain thoroughly after watering.
Temperature: 65°F (18ºC) to 85°F (30°C). Will stop growing below 60°F (15°C).
Fertilizer: Fertilize with a balanced preparation every 4-6 weeks during Spring and Summer.
Pruning: Remove dead or damaged foliage just above soil level.
