Calathea is a genus of several dozen species within the Marantaceae family, native to Brazil and Central America. Several varieties of this plant have become highly valued as house plants due to their unique foliage consisting of velvety patterned leaves. They are surprisingly durable plants, and can bounce right back from dehydration.
In its natural habitat, the calathea is a forest floor dwelling plant which enjoys the shade provided by the plush tropical canopy over head. While it can survive in low light conditions, it may lose its striking color.
Prefers bright indirect light, but is adaptable to bright indirect light conditions.
Be sure to water your plant upon delivery. Calathea like moderately moist soil but will rot when too much moisture is present. If soil is dry an inch below the top of the pot and the Calathea leaves are beginning to curl, it is time to water.
Medium humidity. Calathea will appreciate an occasional misting.
