Intuitively, we may want to increase light due to the plants' white/light foliage, but this rule does not apply to calathea! These are genuinely low-light specimens (found on the jungle floor). In our climate, there are seasonal considerations when it comes to maintenance.

(SEASONAL) CARE:

summer/early fall 

  • Dappled/low light is best 
  • Keep the soil evenly moist but not soaked
  • If possible, use distilled water (NOT spring water ), or allow tap water to sit out for a few days 
  • Does well in a warm environment with high humidity 

late fall/winter/early spring 

  • Bright indirect-medium light is best 
  • Water when the first 1/4-1/3 of soil is dry 
  • If possible, use distilled water (NOT spring water, or allow tap water to sit out for a few days 
  • Keep away from drafts!
  • Does well in a warm environment with high humidity

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

 

*please be mindful that the level and type of variegation is unique to every individual plant. No two plants look exactly alike. Photos demonstrate the varying degrees of appearance with this plant.
