This flowering plant grows best in bright, indirect light, but is very low-light tolerant as well, making it a great choice for any home. Avoid direct light, as they are prone sunburning. Water your Calathea twice per week with distilled water, or whenever the soil begins to dry. They are NOT drought tolerant - their leaves will begin to brown very quickly if they become too dry, so be sure the soil remains an even level of moist (not soggy!). You may even notice the leaves drooping when they're thirsty, but don't worry, they will perk right back up once they're watered. Calathea also require high humidity, and would be happiest in a bathroom or on a humidity tray. Otherwise, you could mist the leaves a few times a week to simulate a humid environment. Finally, all Calathea are pet friendly! They may seem a bit high-maintenance, but their low-light tolerance, non-toxicity, and beautiful foliage make them absolutely worth it.
