Deets: Calathea Concinna leaves are a varigated shade of light and medium shades of green.
Name(s): Calathea Concinna is a member of the Marantaceae, or Maranta family, and is more commonly known as “Freddie"
Light: Calathea’s thrive in medium to bright indirect light. As with all types of Calathea, avoid lighting extremes, such as direct sun and dark corners. Direct sunlight can burn these plants, causing Calathea’s vibrant color to fade. Calathea’s in the wild are found growing on the floors of tropical rainforests. This environment can be mimicked in the home by placing the plant in a shaded area, or a spot which receives medium to bright indirect light.
Water: Loves to be kept evenly moist. These plants do not like their soil to dry out, and like most all plants, can experience root rot if their soil remains too wet or soggy. Calathea Ornata should be watered once the top most layer of soil becomes dry. Amending a standard well-draining potting soil with peat moss or coco coir will help to keep your plants roots evenly moist, while the addition of perlite will ensure that proper drainage and root aeration is provided.
