The Calathea Flamestar is an especially unique and hard-to-find Calathea variety noted for its mesmerizing leaf patterns. The Flamestar displays a range of striking, contrasting hues from chartreuse to deep and vibrant gemstone green, which adds a pop of fun color to any space.
Native to South America, Calathea are accustomed to a humid environment with dappled sunlight, making them especially adaptable to living in our homes as a houseplant. Provided with optimal growing conditions, the mature Calathea Flamestar can grow up to three feet tall.
Light: Calathea thrive in bright, indirect light, though you should avoid placing in direct sunlight to prevent leaf discoloration and sunburn. Paling and curling of the leaves can be an indication of too much direct sun.
Water: Make sure to keep your plant evenly moist, but not soggy or overwatered. Yellowing of the leaves and stems is a good indicator to pull back on your watering schedule, while curling of the leaves is an indication that your Cathea might need a more frequent drink.
Humidity: The main trick with Calathea is to maintain a warm, humid environment. We recommend adding a humidifier to your daily plant routine.
