Care Info

SUN


The Calathea Rosy can tolerate low to bright and indirect light levels. They’ll enjoy placement at the interior of bright rooms or near north + east-facing windows, away from direct light. Their leaf pattern will grow bolder under brighter light and may fade/bleach under direct sunlight.

WATER

Keep soil consistently moist but not wet. Water well when the topsoil has dried 1-2 inches and use room temperature, non-tap water. Reduce frequency during fall and winter.

AIR

Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-75º and a high moisture content. Most indoor air will require extra humidity in order for the 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 Rosy's are safe for cats and dogs. 

AESTHETIC

Rosy's are part of the Calathea family and are native to tropical Brazil, where they grow low in shady areas of the rainforest floor. A healthy + happy Rosy will expand and move its leaves throughout the day to capture maximum light. Each leaf sports a pink center surrounded by a green border.

OUR RECS

We recommend a ceramic planter with a drainage hole to provide ideal moisture balance for your Calathea Rosy. When repotting, keep your plant in a planter of the same size or no more than 2 inches larger.  


Ideal soil amendments include combining coco coir, sand, and/or perlite with your standard potting mix.

 

Nature is unique - each plant may vary slightly from the plant pictured. Ceramic planters are not included.
