  • Planting and care

    A Calathea Plant likes bright indirect light; so placing it in front of an east, west, or north window is ideal. Too much direct sun burns the leaves of a Calathea Plant and causes the beautiful leaf colors to fade.

    Calatheas need to be protected from strong winds wind and even mild cold. Prolonged direct sunlight is harmful. If planted outside in colder areas, during winter the leaves take a beating in the cold. If you wish, cut off all the leaves and stems - at the start of spring, fertilize and all will be well.
