Caring for Calathea makoyana is relatively straightforward, making it an ideal choice for both beginners and seasoned plant enthusiasts. Here are some essential care tips to ensure its well-being:

Calathea makoyana Light Requirements: Provide Calathea makoyana with bright, indirect light. It flourishes in moderate to low light conditions, mirroring its natural setting. Avoid exposing it to direct sunlight, as this can lead to leaf scorching.

Calathea makoyana Temperature and Humidity: Maintaining average room temperatures between 18°C and 24°C (65°F and 75°F) is preferred by this plant. It thrives in high humidity, so misting the leaves or placing it in a humid environment, such as a bathroom, will create an ideal atmosphere.

Calathea makoyana Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of the soil feels slightly dry. Prevent the plant from sitting in standing water to prevent root rot.

Soil and Potting: Plant Calathea makoyana in a well-draining potting mix that retains moisture while allowing excess water to escape. A blend of peat moss, perlite, and orchid bark is well-suited for this purpose.

Should I feed this Calathea makoyanaFeed once a month in spring and summer with liquid plant food. Why not try our vegan, organic plant food or Tropical Plant Dew.
