How to care for Calathea anulque
Calathea anulque needs 0.5 cups of water every 9 when it doesn’t get direct sunlight and is potted in a 5" pot.
Use our water calculator to personalize watering recommendations to your environment or download Greg for more advanced recommendations for all of your plants.
Calathea anulque may have difficulty thriving, and will drop leaves 🍃, without ample sunlight.
Place it less than 3 feet from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.
Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Calathea anulque in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Calathea anulque after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
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!
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
easy as pie
