Calathea Roseopicta – Hydro Pot
Calathea Medallion is a classic variety with large dark green leaves, banded with silver and emerald green. The backs of the leaves are a deep red-purple which adds to its tropical charm.
Calathea must be kept in damp soil at all times, but definitely do not allow the plant to sit in water or in very wet soil. Think ‘little and often’ as a watering policy.
High humidity levels are a must. Mist frequently to improve humidity conditions and pop it near the shower from time-to-time to give it an extra boost.
Apply a weak dose of a nitrogen-rich foliage fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.
