Calathea zebrina


With good humidity, consistent soil moisture, warm air temperatures, and an absence of direct sun, this tropical perennial will usually develop into an extremely attractive indoor foliage plant. Best indoor container growth typically occurs in uniformly moist, well-drained, peaty potting mixtures in room temperatures ranging from 65 to 75°F in medium light locations. Avoid full sun. Plants need high humidity. Water regularly to keep soils moist (but not wet) during the growing season. Reduce watering a bit in winter when plant growth typically slows down.
