The Calathea orbifolia is bound to add dramatic interest to your houseplant collections and is very much on trend.
What's got you down? Leaf droop happens naturally during the day with some Calathea, they then sit more upright at night, however if leaf droop is combined with dry air and soil, the plant needs more water and humidity.
Centre of attention! Calathea need plenty of attention to look their best, particularly when it comes to humidity and watering. Check in with your plant frequently as negative changes can happen quickly.
Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. Do not use leaf shine as this will damage the foliage. Brown tips may occur.
