Apart from the fact that the Calathea Freddie is special to look at, the plant also has a special way of life. The Calathea is known for the fact that it folds its leaves at night, only to open them again in the morning light. This is often accompanied by rustling and lively movements, very nice to see!
Care & tips Calathea Freddie - 30cm
Calathea Freddie likes high humidity. If this is too low, it will lose its ornamental value, its leaves will develop brown spots and its colour will fade. Of course you want to prevent this! It is therefore a good idea to give the Calathea Freddie a helping hand by regularly watering it.
Water requirements for Calathea Freddie - 30cm
Calathea Freddie likes a moist soil. However, make sure it does not stay wet for too long. Between waterings, the top layer of potting soil should not dry out. It is important that the soil always stays moist, but beware of too much water. Too much water can cause root rot and this is often difficult to save. Therefore, keep a close eye on the soil (especially in the early days). If you notice that the soil feels a little dry two days after watering, it is best to give a little more water next time. If, however, you notice that the soil is still very wet after five days, then it is better to give less water the next time.
Light requirements Calathea Freddie - 30cm
Calathea Freddie likes to stand in a light place with indirect sunlight. Direct sunlight is a real 'no go' for this plant, its leaves will become faded in colour and it will not produce new leaves. If this houseplant is placed in a place that is too dark, it will lose its leaf pattern. In both cases we advise you to move the plant, it will recover by itself. Calathea Freddie is best placed out of the draught. When the plant is in the draught it will suffer from spider mite and lice.
Is the Calathea Freddie - 30cm poisonous?
The Calathea Freddie is fortunately not a poisonous houseplant, so you don't have to be careful with small children and pets.
