Calathea Care Guide

Light Requirements

Indirect light to dappled sun

Calatheas thrive in indirect sunlight but tolerate lower light levels too. Bright direct sunlight can cause the stunning colours on their leaves to fade, with prolonged exposure likely to burn and scorch their leaves

Watering Schedule

Weekly watering

Calatheas enjoy weekly waterings, allowing the top 2’ of soil to dry out partially. In winter, we recommend watering less frequently to prevent overwatering and root rot. This plant is not very drought tolerant, and extended periods of dryness will cause leaf edges to brown.


High humidity

Your Calathea will also appreciate being placed in a humid environment, which you can create by misting it frequently, placing it close to other plants or on a pebble tray partly filled with water. Calatheas thrive in steamy bathrooms and kitchens.

Sad Plant Signs

Yellowing leaves, burnt tips, black spots

Yellowing leaves and burnt tips: too much direct light or excessive fluoride in water. Brown or black spots on leaves: overwatering
