Description: Calatheas are beautiful house plants grown for their stunning foliage. The top sides of the leaves look as if they have been painted with beautiful brushstrokes – they’re often intricately patterned, in many shades of green. The undersides of the leaves are often burgundy red.

Light Requirements: Calatheas do best in bright, indirect light but will tolerate a bit of shade. Avoid direct sunlight, as this will scorch the leaves, and keep away from draughts. Provide a minimum temperature of 15°C and avoid rooms with regular temperature fluctuations. Bathrooms are ideal for calatheas, as they love a humid atmosphere.

Water Requirements: Keep the soil evenly moist (but not soaking wet) at all times from spring to autumn – watering little but often is ideal. Use distilled water, filtered water or rainwater as calatheas are sensitive to the chemicals in tap water. Make sure any excess water has drained away. Water less in winter, keeping the soil just moist.
