What other plant parents say
This is a stunning, but high maintenance plant! I’ve had her for a little over two months, and she has been consistently putting out new leaves. I do not water often, maybe once or twice a month, but…

How to care for Pin-Stripe Calathea
Pin-Stripe Calathea 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.
Pin-Stripe Calathea 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 city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Pin-Stripe Calathea 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 Pin-Stripe Calathea after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
