Replicate Calatheas' rainforest habitat with lukewarm, filtered water. Ensure soil is moist, not soggy, and maintain high humidity for optimal growth.

Look for overwatering signs like yellow leaves and underwatering symptoms such as drooping. Adjust watering to prevent stress and promote health.

Recognizing Plant Distress

Watering depends on season and humidity. Increase in warmth, decrease in cold. Check soil moisture to guide your watering schedule.

Adjusting Watering Frequency

Use bottom watering or misting to mimic humidity. Ensure a well-draining mix and monitor soil moisture to avoid water stress.

Effective Watering Techniques

Use room-temperature, filtered water for health. Morning watering mimics natural conditions, allowing efficient water use and preventing diseases.
