- 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
Couldnt ask for better. perfect packaging and a very healthy plant.
This was my first online plant purchase, therefore was sceptical while ordering. But the plant came in great condition! none of the leaves are dead, the plant is very healthy even after being in transit for 3 days. It's a full lush plant (about 25-30 leaves in a 3 inch pot), great packaging too. Highly recommended :)
I'm short of words to describe how divine the foliage is!! A vibrant, full plant delivered in excellent condition!
Been looking for this plant in nearby nurseries but never found one. I’m happy to report this plant has been putting out leaves already
