The latest in plant care tips for keeping your foliage happy and healthy, brought to you by premium plant delivery service Léon & George.
Let's be real here. The calathea is a difficult one in terms of care. It needs constant humidity and warmth. Here are the most common issues you'll experience with plants in the maranta and prayer plant families.
Brown Edges - the air is too dry for your plant! Add misting to your watering routine or keep it on a bed of rocks and shallow water to add humidity.
Curling Leaves - your plant is cold and thirsty! Give your plant a shower, or sit the bottom in a small bowl of shallow water till it soaks everything up. After 12-24 hours, watch the leaves unfurl.
Droopy Leaves - your plant is getting too much water! Allow the soil to air out or change the soil completely to decrease chances of root rot. .
