Calathea Jungle Velvet

Calathea warscewiczii

  • Product Info

    With their unbelievably soft velvet leaves it's fair to say Calathea Warscewiczii are in a league of their own. Calathea love a warm and humid environment to look their best. Water regularly, as the top soil feels dry to the touch, and fertilize once a month in the growing season to be rewarded with frequent scrolls of new leaves. Calathea can be sensitive to hard water and chlorine, so ideally use rain or filtered water where possible to avoid crispy discoloured edges.

     

     

     

  • Troubleshooting:

    Brown edges?
    When watered with tap water, the edges and tips of Calathea leaves can be damaged by the chlorine and other elements found in it. Ideally use rain water or filtered water to prevent this damage though letting tap water sit out for a few days can help somewhat instead. If this isn’t the cause then very dry air can cause browning tips too, try using a pebble tray or moving your plant to a more humid room like the Kitchen or Bathroom!
