Calathea Plant Care Tips and Tricks 

 

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

Calathea Freddie prefers bright, indirect sunlight, making it ideal for placement near a north or east-facing window where it can receive gentle, filtered light. Direct sunlight can scorch its delicate leaves, so it's best to avoid placing it in direct sun.

Light: Medium - Bright

This plant thrives in low to medium light conditions. Avoid exposing it to harsh, direct sunlight, as this can cause its vibrant foliage to fade or burn. Instead, opt for a location with bright, indirect light, such as near a curtain-filtered window.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water your Calathea Freddie when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, typically once or twice a week. Ensure that the pot has proper drainage to prevent water accumulation, which can lead to root rot.

Humidity: High

Calathea Freddie prefers high humidity levels, similar to its native tropical habitat. To increase humidity, place a humidifier nearby or place the plant on a pebble-filled tray filled with water. Misting the leaves regularly can also help maintain adequate humidity levels.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Calathea Freddie 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

To prevent the edges of the leaves from browning or curling, use distilled or filtered water when watering your Calathea Freddie. Tap water can contain minerals and chemicals that may harm the plant over time.

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!
