SUN


The Calathea Fusions' beautiful leaf markings are sensitive to proper light exposure. Medium or filtered bright light is ideal. Avoid bright window sills and west-facing windows. Low light will discourage variegation.

WATER

Keep soil consistently moist but not wet. Water well when the topsoil has dried 1-2 inches, allowing it to drain out. Use room temperature, non-tap water, and reduce frequency through fall and winter.

AIR

Fusions are sensitive to environmental changes, including indoor temperatures, drafts, and movement. Provide comfortable temps between 65º-80º and a high moisture content. Most indoor air will require extra humidity for a Calathea to thrive. Provide a regular boost of humidity by:


  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water
  • Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable

PET FRIENDLY

Calathea Fusions are safe for cats and dogs. 

AESTHETIC

The Fusion is a rare hybrid from Malaysia that grows ornate, green, and cream leaves from pink stems. In the wild, Calatheas grow under the filtered sunlight of the rainforest canopy. With proper indoor light conditions, they will grow and maintain their marbled variegations. Similarly, providing high humidity will preserve the wavy leaves' vibrant appearance. Each night, Calathea leaves fold up, then open again in response to daylight, a fascinating act called nyctinasty. Indoors, Calatheas can grow up to 4 feet tall.

HEALTH BENEFITS

Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 


  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus

Calathea plants are excellent air purifiers. They cleanse the air of indoor toxins, produce oxygen, and their humidifying capabilities will help you sleep + breathe better. Keep their leaves free of dust for optimal photosynthesis and oxygen production.
