- 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 was in dilemma whether I will get quality product or not as for the first time I purchased plant online. Though the delivery was delayed, but received the plant in very good condition with proper packaging. Will definitely order some more plants.
Received this plant with a couple of leaves having partial burn.
However, the plant was healthy.
Neat packing due to which plants received without much of the damage.
Overall, happy with this purchase
Received a dried up shriveled plant. It woke up after a week or two of watering every day and constant care. But a few days of infrequent watering had caused it to dry up again. Some of the leaves are brown. Can't fix this.
Received a gorgeous and full plant
Received in good condition, interesting plant, as its leaves comes closer in the nights! Lovely to watch !
