Essential Tips and Tricks for Thriving Calathea Plants

 

Photographs are representative of the species and not always of the specific plant shipped. Normal variations in size, pruning and leaf structure may occur.

Sun: Indirect

Place your Calathea Flame Star in bright, indirect sunlight to prevent leaf scorching.

Light: Medium - Bright

Provide filtered or low-light conditions to mimic its natural habitat, avoiding direct sun exposure.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged; allow the top inch of soil to dry between waterings.

Humidity: High

Maintain high humidity levels by misting the leaves regularly or placing a humidity tray nearby.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Calathea is non-toxic to pets, making it a safe choice for households with cats or dogs. However, it's essential to prevent pets from chewing or ingesting the plant's leaves, as they may still cause mild gastrointestinal discomfort if consumed in large quantities.

Pro Tip

Consider grouping your Calathea with other humidity-loving plants to create a microclimate that enhances moisture levels.

Your Complete Guide to Pot Sizes: What Size Should You Choose?

When selecting a pot for your plant, it's important to find the right size. But with all the different options out there, how do you know which one is best? We're here to help!

MyGreenscape's pot sizes chart is a great resource for finding your perfect fit. Our easy-to-read chart takes out all the guesswork and helps you quickly choose the right size for your plant.

Smaller pots are best for seedlings or small plants just starting out. These tend to be shallow but wide, allowing enough room for the roots of the young plant but not too much where they get overcrowded. Medium-sized pots are ideal when your plant has grown from its infancy and is ready for more space. These are deeper and wider than small pots, so that it can accommodate larger root systems - making sure your plant gets enough nourishment while still giving it breathing room. Large pots are top choice if you have an established plant in need of lots of space - think trees and large shrubs! The spacious depth and width allow plenty of room for deep root systems without struggling for air or light.

No matter what size you choose, MyGreenscape has got you covered, with our pot sizes chart guaranteeing you find the perfect fit every time!
