💩 Fertilizer

Calathea anulque should be repotted after it doubles in size or once a year, whichever comes first. Fresh potting soil has all the nutrients your plant needs, so as long as it’s refreshed yearly, you shouldn’t need to use fertilizer. Remember, plants get their energy from sunlight, not fertilizer!


🌎 Native Region

Calathea anulque is native to Tropical Americas.


🧐 Troubleshooting

When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

My first calathea. Easy to propagate by division, forgiving & great company. Yup, I said company! Listening to her leaves brush the wall & other plants as she goes to sleep at night made me feel less alone during the UK Covid lockdowns. My favourite plant child!

Kinda tricky to take care of if you live in a dry place like me (SoCal). But has a lot of personality. I love how the leaves raise at the end of the day/during the night!

my favorite calathea i own, she was my first ‘high maintenance’ plant and she took a beating when i was figuring her out just to continuously explode with 4-6 new leaves a week. not to mention, my cats completely chewed on half the leaves and she didn’t skip a beat. we love her.
- keep humidity above 50%
- water when almost dry
- medium/bright indirect light
