Calathea + Maranta Care
Each Calathea/Maranta is different, but each will be happy in medium light. Some, like Dottie/Peacock/Orborifolia/
Rattlesnake/Maranta, prefer medium to low light, while Beauty Star/Freddie/Medallian prefer bright to medium light.
The Pinstripe Calathea prefers bright light.
Prefers ample humidity. If a leaf edge turns brown, spritz with lukewarm water regularly.
Calatheas & Marantas are non-toxic to humans and pets.
Maintain a watering schedule & keep your calathea/maranta moist, but not soggy.
Use a houseplant fertilizer every 4 weeks in the spring & summertime.
65 to 85 degrees is the preferred temperature.
