4″ Calathea Rosy
Calathea Rosy aka Calathea Roseopicta ‘Rosy’ is a particularly unique and eye-catching Calathea! Leaves unfurl a lighter green and darken to almost black as they age. Calathea Roseopicta ‘Rosy’ has a habit of opening and closing its leaves as day transitions to night.
The many different varieties of Calathea are known for their expressive patterned leaves. Calathea plants have a reputation for being finicky but in proper conditions, these plants will reward you with fast growth, endless leaves and can be a low maintenance addition to your plant jungle.
Water: High water needs. Water regularly and keep soil moist, not wet or soggy. For best results, maintain a regular watering schedule and keep your Calathea moist, but not wet or soggy.
Sunlight: Low to medium indirect light. As a rule, the darker the foliage—such as with the calathea ornata—the lower the light requirements. Too much sun will bleach the leaves.
Placement: Calatheas like an environment with higher humidity (like a kitchen or bathroom) and their soil to stay consistently moist. This is not a drought-tolerant 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.
Pets and Kids: All Calathea varieties non-toxic and are pet and kid-friendly!
