Calathea are known for their unique heliotropism, or movement with the sun, and the show-stopping patterns of their foliage. The ‘Vittata’ variety has lovely narrow green leaves with a bold white pinstripe pattern that appears to be almost painted onto their surface. Indigenous to South America, these plants are accustomed to a humid lower light environment, making them especially adaptable to living in our homes as a houseplant.
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.
