Calatheas are a riot of color & a great option for beginner plant parents! Colorful plants can be complicated, but not Calatheas! They'll cope if you're a little late watering them. Like most Calatheas, it'll fold up its leaves at night and unfurl them in the morning (when it's ready to absorb light!). Its easy to keep Calatheas happy if you know about where they're from. They like forest light (i.e. not too much direct light, but not total shade). They also appreciate rainforest-like moisture. Remember to give it a regular misting or put it every now and then in the bathroom.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light. Avoid direct sun.
- Water every 7 - 14 days, allowing soil to dry out between waterings. Increase watering with increased light.
This plant is pet friendly!
Fun planty fact: Calatheas symbolize new beginnings. Remember the saying "to turn over a new leaf"? It originates from them, since they close their leaves at night and re-open them in the morning for a fresh start!
