Calathea 'Triostar' Care Guide
I like a lot of diffused light, but direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose my precious markings. Because I grow on the canopy floor, I can tolerate shade, but I grow much better with indirect light.
I like my soil to be moist, but I am also susceptible to root rot, so don't let me sit in water. Think little and often as a watering policy.
I prefer warm to high temperatures, ideally between 18-23°C but can cope with as low as 15°C. Please keep me away from draughts!
Apply a weak dose of a nitrogen rich foliage fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.
Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust, so that I can breathe properly.
High humidity levels are a must. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Pop it in the shower from time to time to give an extra boost.
