Whether you are new to growing Calatheas or have a long-term relationship with these tropical beauties, you won’t be disappointed with the addition of Calathea zebrina, with its striking striped foliage. Although it can be a bit fussier than some houseplants, the eye-catching foliage is worth the effort.
Bright or medium, indirect light.
Keep the soil lightly moist, watering once the top of the soil is just starting to dry out. Avoid soggy soil. You may see better results by using filtered water or rainwater.
Fertilize monthly with 1/4 strength water soluble fertilizer during the growing season. Avoid over-fertilizing and flush the soil several times per year.
Non toxic to humans and pets.
*If you suspect your pet may have ingested a potentially toxic substance, call the APCC at (888) 426-4435 or contact your local veterinarian as soon as possible.
