  • If possible, use distilled water (NOT spring water ), or allow tap water to sit out for a few days

late fall/winter/early spring

Calathea originate from tropical rainforests and can often be seen growing around the base of trees. That said, these plants require a well-draining potting media that can still retain moisture but not become waterlogged. 

*Calatheas do very well in bathrooms (with a window) or closed terrariums. 

*Cripsy leaves are commonly caused by lack of humidity/water quality or both
