Calathea Medallion is a classic variety with large dark green leaves, banded with silver and emerald green. The backs of the leaves are a deep red-purple which adds to its tropical charm.
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.
Living on the edge! Crisping up at the edges of leaves is a watering issue not humidity. This plant is Sensitive to chlorine in tap water, so allow it to stand overnight to diffuse before use, and maintain an even moist soil.
Going round the twist! If you have noticed that the leaves on your Calathea have started to curl, your plant needs more water. Try to keep the plant evenly moist at all times, but not soggy.
