- Leave the plant in its nursery pot for a few days, if the soil is looking dry and leaves are drooping, water the plant and keep in a shady location for a day.
- Calathea like to have moist soil or planting substances, but not soggy.
- They do not want lots of water, as it can drown them. When you water a Calathea plant, do not water it so much that the plant ends up sitting in standing water.
Quick Tip: Mist your Calatheas with a spray bottle when the weather is dry. They love humidity
A good potting mix consists of one part soil, two parts coco peat, one part perlite, and one part compost.
- Calathea plants need bright, but not direct, sunlight to grow. This is because they grow on the floor of jungles and forests where they get limited light through the tops of the trees. In fact, direct sunlight will burn the leaves of a Calathea plant and cause it to lose its vibrant colors.
Don't keep the prayer plant in direct sunlight, it will burn their leaves
I loved the plant and bought it online. It looked super healthy when it arrived but it's not doing so great anymore. The plant is small, but it's a good buy.
I ordered this plant after seeing the review. But received the worst plant. All leaves turned brown and yellow.
The feedback i received from the seller made me more angry. Such a irresponsible answer. They informed me that it would have turned like that in transport.
It's responsibiltiy of the seller to send it in faster mode, if it's delicate plant. The plant doesn't look like it affected that much during the transport.
I was happy that they have many rare varieties. But had a worst experience in my first purchase itself.
I would have been compromised, if i received the proper response from the seller. Their words were not at all convincing. They do not care about the happiness of the buyer.
Hi, got it as a birthday gift. Could not be happier. Recieved the plant in very good condition. Hoping to order more.
The plant came in healthy and beautiful although a little damage might b due to shipping.. Happy with the site. I have Ordered next batch of plants already.
In love with this beauty. Received plants in good condition just within two days after placing the order, like that’s awesome👌🏻☺️
