Calathea Plant Care Guide


Lighting: Calatheas prefer indirect lighting, and will grow best in a shady room. Place your plants away from any open windows with sunlight

Water: The best way to water is to use distilled water, rain water, or allow your tap water to sit out overnight before using it. Keep the soil moist but never soggy. Allow the top 2-3” to dry out before watering. Never let a Calathea Plant sit in water.

Soil: Use a good light porous indoor potting soil that retains water but still drains quickly.

Temperature: Calatheas like temperatures between 65°-80°, and do not like cold drafts or temperatures below 55°-60°. Hot temperatures cause the leaves to curl.
