Humidity

High humidity is a must! A Calathea Lietzei plant gets brown leaf edges when the air is too dry. Humidity can be increased by placing your plant on a tray of wet pebbles (be sure the pot is on the pebbles and not in the water), setting a humidifier close by, or by grouping plants together to create a greenhouse effect.

Light

Your Calathea Lietzei will do best in medium to low indirect light. Never allow this plant to receive direct sunlight, the leaves will burn.

Soil

Grow well in a light, porous, indoor potting soil that retains water but still drains quickly; an African Violet soil mixture is a good choice.

Temperature

Room temperatures that average 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) and no lower than 60ºF (15ºC). Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes.

Watering

For best results, maintain a regular watering pattern and keep your Calathea Lietzei moist, but not wet or saturated. This is not a drought-tolerant indoor plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges.

Fertilizing

Use a general houseplant fertilizer diluted to half the recommended strength every month during spring and summer. No fertilizer is necessary in the winter when plant growth naturally slows.

Propagation

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