Calathea orbifolia

$14 to $40 [sold out]

Orbifolia has wide, fan like leaves with striking striped patterning. Native to Africa and South America, these plants require a little extra attention to keep happy, but their bold foliage makes it worth it. 

 

LIGHT: Bright, indirect light. Direct sun will burn the leaves and cause the color to fade. An east, west, or north window is ideal.

WATER: Very sensitive to regular tap water. Distilled, filtered, or rain water preferred. Aim to keep the soil moist at all times, but never soggy. Never let a Calathea plant sit in water.

HUMIDITY:  Humidity is key with these plants. They would be happy in a bathroom with bright, indirect light or sitting on a tray of pebbles with water below the rocks. Aim to keep humidity level at 60% or higher in order to avoid brown leaf edges.

TEMPERATURE:  60-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Calathea plants do not like cold drafts.

FERTILIZER:  1x/month during the active growing season.

TOXICITY: Calatheas are non-poisonous houseplants.
