Humidity

Like many tropical indoor plants, this plant 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.

Light

Calathea Misto will do best in medium to low light. Never allow this plant to stand in the direct sunlight, the leaves will get sunburned!

Soil

Use a good light porous indoor potting soil that retains water but still drains quickly. African Violet soil works well.

Temperature

Calathea Misto prefers average room temperatures between 60-80 degrees. It will not tolerate temperatures below 55 degrees. It is also sensitive to cold drafts or blowing heat during the winter months, so keep it away from windows and heaters for best results.

Watering

For best results, maintain a regular watering schedule and keep the soil damp, but never wet or saturated. This is not a drought tolerant indoor plant, however, the top of the soil should be allowed to dry out a little between waterings. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges. Overwatering will cause the plant to wilt and it will recover slowly.

Fertilizing

For best results, use a general houseplant fertilizer with iron every four weeks during the spring and summer. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.

Propagation

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