How to keep this plant alive
Find the right spot
Oh, what a beauty. This colourful Calathea prefers to be in the shade. He also likes some indirect sunlight, but avoid direct sunlight. Search of a draught-free place in your home. Because he really does not like that.
How thirsty is this plant?
He’ll take a sip! Always give small bits of water and make sure the soil does not dry out. Fortunately, he’ll tell you when he’s thirsty, because then his leaves will hang.
Did you know…?
- This plant needs a good night sleep to stay pretty? In the evening he raises his leaves, so you can see the purple-pink bottom. And in the morning, he open his leaves again. This will result in some rustling, so don’t be alarmed.
