Caring for Rorisang

Light

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

Water & humidity

Water 2-3 times a week, keeping the soil moist but not soggy. 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.

Feeding

Once a month with a sachet of organic Canola Meal

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.

Atrium Top Tip

If the leaf starts curling it means lack of water. Brown edges mean lack of humidity.

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.
