Plant Care Guide:

1. Light Requirements:

  • Foot Candle: 50-150 foot candles
  • Place your Calathea 'Ornata' 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 lukewarm water to avoid shocking the plant.

3. Temperature and Humidity:

  • Maintain a temperature range of 65-75°F (18-24°C). The Ornata 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 'Ornata' 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 'Ornata' 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.
