Caring for Fatimah

Light

Medium to bright, but do not expose to direct light. Tolerates medium light conditions.

Water & humidity

Water often keeping the soil moist but not soggy. Let the soil dry out 1-2cm down in winter. Calatheas are susceptible to root rot, so don't let water sit in the tray. Mist leaves regularly for best results as they love humidity! Humidity is key to success with this plant. Read our tips here

Feeding

Once a month in summer with organic fertiliser.

Re-potting

Every two years in spring. Calatheas don't like to be pot bound, but to have plenty of room. Mix 1/3 regular potting soil with 1/3 peat moss and 1/3 pumice stones. This mix ensures good drainage while still retaining moisture. Or use our Hemp Super Soil!

Atrium Top Tip

If the leaf starts curling it means lack of water & humidity. These plants also need to be kept warm at above 15C, or leaves will curl up from cold. It's hard to keep a Calathea blemish free. Brown marks and spots are a result of humidity levels that are low, or the chlorine in our tap water. For best results use filtered water.

Quirky plant fact

Calatheas are known as prayer plants because at night they close their leaves as if in prayer. They originate from deep in the Amazon jungle.
