Wow. We are really fans of the Calathea White Fusion - 70cm. With its beautiful white leaf markings, the plant really steals the show. The Calathea White Fusion originates from the tropical rainforests of South America. In these rainforests, the plant grows in the shadow of taller trees and other large plants. For this reason, the Calathea is often called the 'Shadowplant', because we didn't think it had enough nicknames yet. In the evening the Calathea White Fusion folds its leaves and unfolds them again in the morning at the first rays of light. Truly a living plant!
Care & tips Calathea White Fusion - 70cm
The Calathea White Fusion is an easy plant to take care of, but the plant is not called 'Shadowplant' for no reason. This Calathea is not a big fan of sunlight. Ideal to fill up a dark corner in your room. The Calathea also likes to be surrounded by a high humidity. You can achieve this by regularly spraying the leaves. From March to September the plant can be given some extra nutrition once every fortnight. We strongly advise against doing this in the winter months, as the plant is in a resting mode during this period.

Make sure the soil of the Calathea White Fusion always stays slightly moist. We recommend to feel this for each plant. If the soil is still very wet from the previous time, you can better wait a little while.

When the leaves hang or curl, this is a sign of a shortage of water. In this case it is best to water the plant more often.
