Plant Care Guide


Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate low light as well. Avoid direct sunlight.



Prefers soil to partially dry out so check about once a week. Thrives in a moist environment with high humidity. Water less in winter when plant is dormant.


Level of Care

Easy! Just avoid direct sunlight and don't overwater.


Air Purifying

Calatheas remove toxins that can build up in indoor spaces. A general rule of thumb is 1 medium houseplant per 100 square feet of space effectively cleans the air we breathe.



Feed with a mild liquid, indoor plant fertilizer about once a month during the growing season. Do not fertilize in winter.



Prefers warm conditions 65-80°F. Keep away from drafty windows and air conditioners.



A peaty All-Purpose potting soil with good drainage works best.


Pruning & Propagation

Prune yellow or damaged leaves down to stem. To propagate, large plants can be divided in the spring.


Pet Friendly

Yes! Calatheas are non-toxic to dogs and cats.
