Calathea Rufibarba, also known as Furry Feather Calathea, is a tropical houseplant with long, narrow, wavy green leaves and a burgundy underside. Here are some tips for caring for your Calathea Rufibarba:

  1. Light: Calathea Rufibarba prefers bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight can burn the leaves, while too little light can cause the plant to become leggy.

  2. Water: Calathea Rufibarba prefers moist soil. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry, but be careful not to overwater as it can lead to root rot.

  3. Humidity: Calathea Rufibarba likes high humidity. You can increase the humidity around the plant by placing a tray of water nearby, using a humidifier, or grouping it with other plants.

  4. Temperature: Calathea Rufibarba prefers temperatures between 60-75°F (15-24°C). It is important to keep the plant away from cold drafts and air conditioning.

  5. Soil: Calathea Rufibarba prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Calathea Rufibarba with a balanced fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the winter months.

  7. Pruning: Prune your Calathea Rufibarba to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can also remove any yellowing or damaged leaves or stems.

  8. Propagation: Calathea Rufibarba can be propagated by division.

  9. Toxicity: Calathea Rufibarba is non-toxic to pets and humans.

By following these tips, you can help your Calathea Rufibarba thrive and enjoy its beautiful foliage in your home or office.
