40 - 50cm Calathea Rosio Silvia Prayer Plant 17cm Pot House Plant
Calathea Rosy is a beautiful and popular prayer plant, which requires a bit of attention to thrive. Here are some care tips for Calathea Rosy Silvia:
Light: Calathea Rosy Silvia thrives in medium to bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant to lose its vibrancy. Keep the plant near a bright window, but avoid direct sunlight.
Water: Calathea Rosy Silvia likes to be kept consistently moist, but not waterlogged. Allow the top inch of soil to dry out slightly before watering again. Water the plant from the bottom to prevent getting water on the leaves, which can cause fungal problems.
Humidity: Calathea Rosy Silvia likes high humidity, so mist the leaves regularly or place a humidifier nearby. You can also place the plant on a tray of pebbles filled with water to create a humid microclimate.
Temperature: Calathea Rosy Silvia prefers warm temperatures between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C), and doesn't like sudden temperature drops. Keep the plant away from drafts and air conditioning.
Soil: Calathea Rosy Silvia prefers well-draining, slightly acidic soil. A good potting mix would be a combination of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.
Fertilizer: Feed Calathea Rosy Silvia with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer), and reduce feeding in the fall and winter.
Pruning: Remove any brown or yellow leaves, and trim any leggy stems to encourage bushy growth.
With the right care, Calathea Rosy Silvia can grow to be a stunning, healthy plant that will add life and color to your home.
