Humidity

Like many tropical indoor plants, the Calathea Glaziovii plant prefers a spot with ample humidity. Mist the leaves twice per week with room temperature water. Your bathroom or kitchen can be the perfect spot for your plant because these areas tend to be more humid.

Light

Like many plants, the Calathea Glaziovii enjoys bright light without direct sunlight. North, east or west facing rooms are suitable.

Soil

2 parts peat/1 part perlite would be suitable. The soil needs to be able to retain some moisture while also being able to drain (too much drainage materials used is not advised). Replenish the top soil in the pot in the spring months so that the plant can get new fertilizer and nutrients.

Temperature

This plant enjoys the warmth, preferably between 65-85 degrees. Maintain indoor temperatures above 60 degrees and avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

Watering

This species enjoys being in moist soil at all times. Avoid using hard water and use either tepid rain or distilled water. Watering needs to decrease naturally after the growing season, before and during winter.

Fertilizing

Feed only during the growing season from April - October with a diluted liquid feed once every 2 weeks.

Propagation

Calathea Glaziovii plants are difficult to propagate; if you want to try, plant division.
