Caring for Your Calathea Makoyana:
To ensure the health and vibrancy of your Calathea Makoyana, follow these essential care guidelines:
Light Requirements: Place your Calathea Makoyana in an area with bright, indirect light, shielding it from harsh, direct sunlight. Ideal spots include areas near north or east-facing windows.
Temperature and Humidity: Maintain a warm and mildly humid environment for your Calathea Makoyana, with temperatures between 18°C and 26°C (65°F and 80°F). You can boost humidity by misting the leaves or using a humidifier.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, allowing the top inch to dry slightly before watering again. Finding the right balance is crucial, as both underwatering and overwatering can affect the plant's health.
Soil and Potting Tips: Use a well-draining potting mix designed for tropical plants. The Calathea Makoyana prefers soil that retains moisture while allowing excess water to escape. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to prevent water accumulation. Repotting may become necessary every one to two years or when the plant outgrows its container.
Fertilising Your Calathea Makoyana: Nourish your plant with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two to four weeks during the active growing season, typically spring and summer. Reduce or cease fertilization during the slower growth phase in winter. Try our vegan plant food here
