+ Plant Tip :
Common problems you may face with your Calathea is under watering, overwatering, or a fungal infection. The signs of under watering are dry soil and wilting/curling leaves. Overwatering can often cause your plant’s leaves to yellow and leave the base of the plant black. Fungal infections can be diagnosed by spots on your leaves, caused by a buildup of minerals and fungus from tap water. It’s recommended you either use distilled water or leave water out 24 hours before watering.
