Caring for your Calathea 'Makoyana':
Light: This plant prefers moderate, indirect sunlight. Keep out of direct sunlight, which will dull the colour of the leaves. Very low light can slow down growth.
Water: This plant prefers to be misted every other day. If the air gets too dry, the leaves will turn brown or yellow. Use distilled water or rainwater if you can, and keep the soil evenly moist and not waterlogged. Reduce watering during the winter as the plant requires.
Humidity: Wherever practical, keep the humidity high - especially in winter - by standing the plant pot on wet pebbles, or grow in humidified rooms.
Temperature: Keep the temperature consistent between 60ºF – 75ºF (15.5-24ºC) and avoid draughty locations.
Pet Safe: This plant is non-toxic and safe for both humans and children.
