Type: Plastic Nursery Pot
Size: Medium :: 4 Inch Diameter
Size: Large :: 6 Inch Diameter
Light: Calathea concinna thrives in bright, indirect light. Protect it from direct sunlight, as excessive sun exposure can scorch the leaves. Place it near a window with filtered sunlight or use sheer curtains to diffuse light.
Temperature: Keep your Calathea Freddie in a warm and consistent environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid exposing it to cold drafts or temperatures below 60°F (15°C).
Humidity: Calathea Concinna requires high humidity levels to flourish. To increase humidity, mist the plant regularly, use a humidity tray, or place a humidifier nearby. Grouping plants together can also help create a more humid microclimate.
Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist but not soggy. Water your Calathea Freddie when the top inch (2.5 cm) of the soil feels dry. Use lukewarm, non-chlorinated water and ensure that the pot has good drainage to prevent root rot. Adjust the watering frequency based on the plant's needs and the environment; it may require more water during the growing season and less during the dormant period.
Soil: Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to provide good aeration and moisture retention. Adding perlite or orchid bark can improve soil drainage.
Fertilization: Feed your Calathea Concinna with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Avoid over-fertilizing, which can lead to salt buildup in the soil.
Pruning: Trim or remove any yellowing or damaged leaves as they appear to maintain the plant's appearance and redirect energy to healthy growth.
Repotting: Repot your Calathea Freddie when it becomes root-bound or outgrows its container. Spring is usually the best time for repotting. Choose a pot that is slightly larger than the current one.
Pests: Keep an eye out for common houseplant pests like spider mites and mealybugs. If you notice any infestations, treat them promptly with insecticidal soap or Neem oil.
