I moved her away from the window, could the humidifier that's on low be to close to it? #calathea-help

@gjones @mardel Thanks for the tag and sorry for replying so late! 🙈 I have a Stromanthe and Calathea lancifolia, but both need a different care. Since I have no experience with this one, I don't know if I can help you.. But of course I can try. How did you care for it so far? ☺️

I had to move my calathea from my bedroom to my family room, it wasn't getting enough light I believe and the leaves were curling. #plantid #houseplant-advice #cala #houseplant #help #calathea

My first calathea plant...got it for my bday and it was so huge I decided to separate her into 3 pots . I heard how finicky this plant can be but I'm up for the challenge . Have it in front of a humidifier in my bedroom anyone own one and has any advice please share. #plantid #houseplant-advice #calathea-makoyana #cala #calathea-help #repotting #humidity

Indirect sunlight. A bright room, a few feet away from a north, east or west facing window. Only very occasional watering. Is it too wet?

@KariSamuel I had it in my bedroom were the light was very low and I have kept the soil moist , I think it might be the watering. I did move her to a different room, my family room downstairs were we get light but not direct sun. So you recommend I let the soil dry out a bit?

Yes. Constant wet roots can cause them to rot. Have you ever thought about getting a light, moisture, pH meter? I have one that I got off Amazon fairly inexpensive.
