Calathea Concinna Care
Like many tropical indoor plants, your Calathea Concinna prefers a spot with ample humidity. Brown edges on the leaves indicate the air is too dry. Mist the leaves twice per week with room temperature water.
Your Calathea Concinna will do best in medium to low indirect light. Never allow this plant to receive direct sunlight, the leaves will burn.
A peat based potting mix is required. 2 parts peat and 1 part perlite is one mixture that will be fine.
Your Calathea Concinna prefers average room temperatures from 60-80 degrees. They are sensitive to cold drafts and blowing heat during the winter months, so keep them away from windows and heaters for best results.
During the winter months it is important to keep the plant watered but do allow the top soil to dry out in between watering's. Water when the soil begins to dry or keep the top soil moist in warmer months.
Use a balanced liquid feed to encourage the foliage to look healthy and more attractive. Feed once a month from April - August.
