Plant Care Guide:

1. Light Requirements:

  • Foot Candle: 50-150 foot candles
  • Place your Calathea Concinna 'Freddie' in low to moderate indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but avoid direct sunlight, which can harm the leaves.

2. Watering:

  • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry. Use room-temperature water to avoid shocking the plant.

3. Temperature and Humidity:

  • Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). The Freddie Calathea appreciates moderate to high humidity levels, so consider using a humidifier or misting the leaves regularly.

4. Soil and Fertilization:

  • Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix. Fertilize your Calathea 'Freddie' every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced liquid fertilizer.

5. Pruning and Maintenance:

  • Trim any yellowing or damaged leaves to encourage new growth. Gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their vibrant appearance.

6. Toxicity:

  • Calathea Concinna 'Freddie' is non-toxic and safe for pets and children.

7. Pests:

  • Check for common pests like spider mites or mealybugs regularly. If needed, treat and prevent them with our "Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide." You can find it here.
