Calathea Roseopicta, also known as the Rose-Painted Calathea or Rose-Painted Prayer Plant, is a tropical houseplant with dark green leaves with pink stripes or markings. Here are some tips for caring for your Calathea Roseopicta:

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

  2. Water: Calathea Roseopicta 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 Roseopicta 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 Roseopicta 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 Roseopicta prefers well-draining soil that is rich in organic matter.

  6. Fertilizer: Feed your Calathea Roseopicta 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 Roseopicta to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. You can also remove any yellowing or damaged leaves or stems.

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

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

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