The Calathea Sanguinea is compact growing calathea that has a very subtle variegation in its leaves with a faint cream center. It shows its beautiful purple undersides while the leaf is unfurling as well as in the evening when it’s leaves close up for the night. Delicate and sophisticated and just a little temperamental this plant will reward your dedicated care with its striking beauty!
Light: Bright indirect light will keep your Calathea sanguinea the happiest. The more indirect sunlight it gets the more variegation you see in the leaves and the brighter the colors will be. Avoid direct sunlight as this may scorch leaves.
Water: Calathea like to be kept consistently moist. Only allow the top inch or so to dry between watering. You can slow down on watering during colder months. Avoid overwatering, your plant should never be sitting in water or have soggy soil.
Humidity: Calathea love humidity. Unless you live in a very humid environment, we recommend adding moisture to your space. Some ways to do this is with a pebble tray, grouping your tropical plants together, or with a humidifier.
