Care Tips for Calathea Orbifolia:

Sunlight Requirements

Orbifolia plants do not tolerate direct sunlight, as leaves will burn and fade in color. Calathea orbifolia plants tolerate shade but not consistent low lighting conditions throughout the day.

Soil and Potting

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure proper root health and moisture retention. Ensure that the pot has adequate drainage holes to prevent waterlogging.

Watering

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Misting the leaves can help maintain the required humidity.

Temperature and Humidity

Orbifolia Plants prefer warm temperatures and high humidity. In the UAE, maintaining moderate humidity levels by misting the leaves or using a humidifier is essential. Protect the plant from cold drafts.

Fertilizing

Feed your Calathea Orbifolia Plant with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant every 4-6 weeks. This promotes healthy growth and maintains the vibrancy of its foliage.

Pruning and Maintenance

Minimal pruning is required for Calathea Orbifolia Plants. Remove any dead or yellowing leaves to maintain a tidy appearance. Regularly inspect your plant for pests and diseases and address them promptly to ensure its health.
