Calathea Zebrina is an absolute stunner, from its velvety texture to its striking lime and dark green stripes shadowed by a rich purple underside. This plant could easily win a beauty contest or two. Like all Calathea, these plants require a fairly regimented watering and misting routine in order to thrive.
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 soil 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 Calathea 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, especially for this velvety variety.
