Calathea Care 101
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.
Water every 1–2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.
This plant can benefit from extra humidity.
Calatheas can be sensitive to hard tap water. Try using filtered water or leaving water out overnight before using.
Most calatheas are pet friendly!
Calatheas exhibit a phenomenon known as nyctinasty. They move their leaves from day to night as a part of their circadian rhythm.
