Calathea Warscewiczii Care
Like many tropical indoor plants, your Calathea Warscewiczii prefers a spot with ample humidity. If leaf edges begin to curl or brown up, mist them with lukewarm water on a regular basis, or use a pebble tray. Your bathroom or kitchen are perfect spots for this plant because these areas tend to be more humid.
Your Calathea Warscewiczii will do best in medium to low indirect light. Never allow your plant to receive direct sunlight, as the leaves will burn.
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.
Room temperatures that average 65-75ºF (18-24ºC) and no lower than 60ºF (15ºC). Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes.
For best results, maintain a regular watering schedule and keep your Calathea Warscewiczii 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.
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 method for this species is by division. This is done when the plant has grown large enough to separate clumps of stems with roots. Until the new plant have new growth cover them with polythene to keep conditions warm and humid. Try to propagate when it's time for repotting.
