Plant Details

Calathea is a genus of several dozen species within the Marantaceae family, native to Brazil and Central America. Several varieties of this plant have become highly valued as house plants due to their unique foliage consisting of velvety patterned leaves. They are surprisingly durable plants, and can bounce right back from dehydration.

In its natural habitat, the calathea is a forest floor dwelling plant which enjoys the shade provided by the plush tropical canopy over head. While it can survive in low light conditions, it may lose its striking color.

Product Overview

  • Light Requirements

    This is a high light plant. It will do best close to a south or west facing window, or directly against a north or east facing window.

    Please note that obstructions can cause a considerable decrease in the available light. Windows facing other buildings or alleys, especially on the bottom floors, are particularly susceptible.

    The surest way to see if your space receives the light required for a potted plant is to take a light meter reading. Please see our Lighting Guide for instructions.

  • Plant Care

    CARE LEVEL
    Moderate

    LIGHT REQUIREMENTS
    Prefers bright light, but is adaptable to bright indirect light conditions.

    WATER REQUIREMENTS
    Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Calathea like moderately moist soil but will rot when too much moisture is present. If soil is dry and inch below the top of the pot and the Calathea leaves are beginning to curl, it is time to water.

    HUMIDITY PREFERENCE
    Medium humidity. Calathea will appreciate an occasional misting.
