Calathea Roseopicta Care Guide

Here are some tips on how to care for your Calathea Roseopicta:

Light

Calathea plants prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can cause the leaves to fade or become scorched.

Water

Keep the soil consistently moist, but be careful not to overwater as this can lead to root rot. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out between waterings.

Temperature

Calathea plants prefer a humid environment and a temperature of around 70 degrees Fahrenheit. A bit lower or higher temperature is mangable but keep it safe in winters.

Soil

Use a well-draining potting mix that contains peat moss or coir. Normal garden soil can also do well but better soil can bring the best results for you.

Fertilizer

Fertilize your Calathea plant every two to four weeks during the growing season using a balanced liquid fertilizer.

Repotting

Repot your Calathea plant every two to three years, or whenever it outgrows its current pot. Now this time you have to choose a next-size pot in which your plant can easily get fit.

By following these care guidelines, your Calathea Roseopicta should thrive and provide a beautiful and tropical addition to your home.
