Calathea Crimson

Calathea Crimson Care Guide


Calathea Crimson prefers bright, indirect light to maintain its vibrant foliage. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.


Water Calathea Crimson when the top 1-2 inches of soil feels dry. Use room temperature water and avoid letting the plant sit in water to prevent root rot.


Maintain high humidity levels of at least 60-70% to keep the Calathea Crimson thriving. Use a humidifier or place the plant on a pebble tray filled with water to increase humidity.


Keep Calathea Crimson in a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). Protect it from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.


Use a balanced liquid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring and summer). Apply fertilizer once a month. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant season (fall and winter) as the plant's growth slows down.


Calathea Crimson is non-toxic to pets and humans, making it a safe choice for households with pets and children.
