Where to grow
Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:Feed your Calathea a fertiliser that is high in nitrogen every three weeks in its growing month of summers. In winters, feed the fertiliser less frequently, but avoid overfertilization to prevent damage to the foliage.
Repotting : Repot your Calathea annually in rich well-draining soil in a one size larger pot when it outgrows its current pot.
Propogation : Calatheas can be propagated by division of the main rhizome after the parent plant has grown enough in size and is mature. It can also be propagated by stem cuttings.
1. Calathea leaves are turning brown
Under-watering and excessive use of fertiliser both can lead to browning of leaves. Water your plant less frequently and reduce the amount of fertiliser you use if this problem occurs.
2. Why does my Roseopicta have a limp stem?
Limp stem is an indication of over-watering or very cold temperatures. Move your Calathea to a warmer spot and water it less frequently.
3. Why is my Calathea roseopicta drooping?
Drooping of the leaves can be caused by over-watering or exposure to cold temperatures. Make sure you fix your watering schedule and move your plant to a warmer spot.

Light Requirements :Calatheas prefer bright ,indirect sunlight. Keep your Calathea away from direct sunlight at all times.
Locations :Calatheas are known to be temperamental. But, with the right amount of water and sunlight you can easily grow Calatheas indoors. Keep your Calathea near a window or in your shaded balcony where it receives sufficient indirect light. In offices, lobbies, cubicles or meeting rooms are all good locations for the Calathea.
Styling/decor tip :A single Calathea can instantly change the look of your home. It adds texture and colour to your minimalist decor. You can also group different species of Calatheas together to make a pretty green corner which is so soothing to the eye. We highly recommend using a lighter monochrome or our gold metallic planter for the Calathea.
