Propagation by division.

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Take divisions from mature plants at re-potting time and plant in a rich compost. Cover pots with polythene and keep warm until new plants are established.

 

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

To plant as a houseplant, use a good light porous indoor potting soil that retains water but still drains quickly. African Violet soil works well for Calatheas. Once planted, site in a situation that offers bright, indirect sunlight. In front of an east, west, or north facing window is ideal. Too much direct sun burns the leaves of a Calathea Plant and causes the beautiful leaf colours to fade.
