Care Information

  • Site

    Light shade in summer. Brighter in winter but keep out of direct sun, this will dull the colour of the leaves, and could be fatal!

  • Temperature

    Keep warm minimum of 16°C / 60°F.

  • Water

    Keep well watered in summer, Caltheas love high humidity mist when you can and keep the compost moist in the summer. Brown tips show that the humidity is too low.

  • Feeding

    Feed with a very weak solution when you water. Don't give it a strong feed every now and then.

  • Tip

    Do not repot too often and use a peat based compost.

Calathea types

Although common as houseplants the calatheas are a stunning group of plants. With bold leaf markings as well as the bonus of the purple underside they are a great choice for a shady room.
