28 July 2017 She has gotten so lush since I took her home three months ago. So many new leaves! When I read plantsarethestrangestpeople's (hilarious) experience with her and how she's a diva, I got worried since she was one of my first houseplants and I am still a beginner at this but so far so good 😊😬🤞 #calathea #CalatheaOrnata #pinstripe #variegated #pink #pink-leaves #houseplant #PHGardenTags #PHGardenTagsCalathea
Notes: Water every other day; mist on other days. Likes moist but not soggy soil. Allow top 2-3" of the soil to dry out before watering. Leaves droop when over-watered. Requires high humidity. Needs bright indirect light (directly in front of east-facing window, or within 1-3 feet of a west-facing window, or within 5 feet of a south-facing window). Rarely grows beyond 2 ft. wide/tall indoors.
