Get to Know Calathea

With a striking leaf pattern, this eye-catcher is an indoor staple as much as it is a landscapers go-to. It’s particular, having evolved in the dappled sunlight and humidity of the rainforest floor, but we’re into plants who know what they like.

Position
Calatheas like bright rooms but not direct sunlight. Their leaves can burn easily.

Watering
Water sparingly. They like moist soil, but can drown if they get too wet. Some say purified water should be used.

Care
Keep them warm. And they love humid conditions. No need to prune. Fertilise annually.
