Calathea "Furry Feather " (Calathea rufibarba)
Light Requirements: Calatheas generally prefer a medium, indirect sunlight, but can tolerate lower-light conditions.
Watering: Allow top few inches of soil to dry out before watering again. The time frame may vary at 1 to 2 weeks, so it is best to feel the soil to see if it is still moist or not.
- Calatheas thrive best in high humidity. This means they can do great in terrariums, or near your shower. Otherwise, it is best to mist the leaves every few days.
- A common, mild problem calatheas can have is dry, browning leaf tips—but not to worry, this just indicates that it is not getting enough humidity.
- This plant is pet-safe.
