The calathea plant is an incredibly stunning houseplant, one of my favorites for home decor. The intricately detailed patterns on their foliage truly make them stand out.
Yellowing and browning are both indicators of overwatering and underwatering in calathea.
- Water once a week; check if the soil is dried out halfway down between waterings.
- Watering must be done more often in better light and less frequently in lower light.
Calathea leaf curling indicates underwatering, low humidity, too much sunlight, and temperature extremities.
- Do not put your plant in the way of heating and cooling vents or a drafty region.
- Use a humidifier to increase humidity levels.
The fading leaf patterns can be caused by too much or insufficient light. Usually, too much direct sunshine is most likely to blame.
- Relocate the calathea to a spot with more shade or indirect light to restore the pattern.
- Once a month, use a diluted regular houseplant fertilizer.
Root rot is a typical problem with specimens sitting in overly wet or saturated soil for an extended period.
– Plant your calathea in a pot with drainage holes and periodically check if the holes are blocked or not.
- Repot your plant once every 2-3 years.
