Benefits of Calathea Jungle Velvet

Air Purification:

Calathea Warscewiczii, like other plants in the Calathea genus, helps improve indoor air quality by filtering out toxins such as formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene. Its large leaves increase the surface area for this purifying process, contributing to a healthier indoor environment.

Stress Reduction:

The presence of indoor plants, including Calathea Warscewiczii, has been linked to reduced stress levels and improved overall well-being. Their lush foliage and soothing green color have a calming effect, promoting relaxation and mental clarity.

Humidity Regulation:

Calathea Warscewiczii is native to tropical regions, where it thrives in high humidity environments. By transpiring moisture through its leaves, it can help regulate humidity levels in indoor spaces, creating a more comfortable atmosphere, especially during dry seasons or in air-conditioned rooms.

Aesthetic Enhancement:

With its striking foliage featuring deep green leaves adorned with bold, intricate patterns of lighter hues, Calathea Warscewiczii adds a touch of elegance and visual interest to any indoor setting. It serves as a beautiful decorative element, enhancing the aesthetic appeal of homes, offices, or any interior space.

Low Maintenance:

Compared to some other ornamental plants, Calathea Warscewiczii is relatively low maintenance, making it suitable for both novice and experienced plant enthusiasts. It thrives in indirect light and requires regular but moderate watering, allowing individuals to enjoy its beauty without demanding extensive care.

Non-Toxicity:

For households with pets or small children, the non-toxic nature of Calathea Warscewiczii is a significant advantage. It can be safely kept indoors without posing a risk to curious pets or children who may come into contact with the plant.

Natural Décor Element:

In addition to its health and well-being benefits, Calathea Warscewiczii serves as a natural décor element that effortlessly elevates the ambiance of any space. Whether used as a focal point or as part of a larger indoor garden arrangement, its unique foliage adds character and charm to interior design schemes.

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 Jungle Velvet in bright, indirect sunlight to avoid leaf burn.

Light: Medium - Bright

Ensure your Calathea Jungle Velvet receives consistent, filtered light to maintain its vibrant foliage.

Water: When half dry

Keep the soil of your Calathea Jungle Velvet consistently moist but not waterlogged, allowing it to dry slightly between watering.

Humidity: High

Provide high humidity by misting the leaves regularly or placing a tray of water near the plant to prevent browning edges.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Calathea Jungle Velvet 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

Grouping your Calathea Jungle Velvet with other plants can help create a microclimate with higher humidity levels, promoting its overall health and vibrancy.

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!
