🌿 Botanical Name: Calathea spp.

🐾 Pet Warning: Non-toxic to cats and dogs, so it is safe for a household with pets.

💧 Care Level: Moderate to High. Calatheas are known for their specific care requirements, especially regarding humidity and water.

📏 Approximate Size: The size of Calatheas can vary, but most species grow to about 2 feet (60 cm) tall and wide with broad, decorative leaves.

Description: Calathea is admired for its ornate foliage, which comes in various patterns and colors, often with beautiful marbling and veining. The leaves can move, rising and lowering from day to night, which has earned them the nickname "prayer plants."

🌞 Light: Prefers low to medium light, no direct sunlight. Bright indirect light is ideal for maintaining vibrant leaf colors and patterns.

💧 Water: Keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy. Water when the top inch of soil begins to dry out. Calatheas are sensitive to fluoride and salts in tap water, so use filtered or distilled water if possible.

💦 Humidity: Requires high humidity to thrive. Regular misting, a humidifier, or a pebble tray can help meet their humidity needs.

🌡️ Temperature: Best kept in warm conditions, between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C). Avoid sudden temperature drops and cold drafts.

❄️ Hardiness: Not frost-tolerant. Ideal as an indoor plant in most climates, kept away from cold windows or exterior doors.

🌱 Fertilizing: Fertilize with a balanced fertilizer every month during the growing season. Dilute the fertilizer to half the recommended strength to avoid burning the roots.

🔄 Re-potting: Re-pot in spring every couple of years or when the plant has outgrown its pot. Use a well-draining potting mix designed for indoor plants.

🌱 Propagation: Most Calatheas can be propagated by division during repotting. Separate the plants into smaller clumps, ensuring each has roots, and repot into individual pots.
