This beautiful Calathea should be watered once every 7-10 days and we’d suggest you keep checking the soil especially during Summer to ensure it hasn’t dried out. Treat it to a little mist every week or so to keep those leaves looking lush and don’t forget to dust them too!

A medium-light to bright spot is perfect for these beauties – just be careful in the Summer months as they don’t love direct sun, as it can scorch their leaves. Trim off any discoloured leaves as they grow to ensure they look perfect and encourage new growth too!

Don’t forget to keep it out of draughts and away from radiators. It will thrive in medium light and high humidity so is perfect for a bathroom or kitchen.
