How to take care Calathea Ornata -Pinstripe plant
Calatheas can be a little tricky to take care of but we have some tips that will help you keep your calathea happy and healthy.
Being native to South American rainforest, calatheas prefer to stay moist but not wet or saturated. Do not let the plant dry out completely. Once the top two inches of the potting mix are dry, water your plant again. If possible use distilled water.
In the wild, calatheas grow in shady spots. They do not tolerate direct sunlight and when exposed to it, their leaves turn brown. Indoors, find a medium- to low-light spot for your calathea.
These plants love humidity. If your apartment is dry try spraying the plant occasionally or getting a humidifier.
It’s advised to fertilize calatheas during the growing season (Spring – Summer) with an all-purpose fertilizer.
