Freddie is easy to grow once you get the hang of things. The Calathea Freddie is also known as a Calathea Concinna or a Prayer Plant. The broad leaves come to a point and feature alternating light- and dark-green stripes. The foliage folds up during the night and lays flat during the day,

Best Locations For Growing Freddie Calathea

Freddie Calathea needs increased moisture to look its best. This plant will do best in a bathroom, kitchen, or any area with increased moisture in the air. You can still welcome Freddie into an area with limited moisture, but use a pebble tray with water or a humidifier to make this plant feel at home.

Freddie Calathea Sunlight Requirements

Medium indirect light is best for Calathea Freddie. Direct sunlight will dry out and burn the delicate foliage, while limited light may reduce growth. 

Freddie Calathea Care

Water is an essential part of Freddie Calathea care. Consistently moist soil and high humidity are a must for this stunner. A naturally humid environment is a good fit for this plant, but Freddie can live in drier climates with increased care and attention.

Watering Freddie Calathea

Water the Calathea Freddie when the top layer of soil is just slightly moist. This beauty does not like to dry out completely but also does not tolerate water-logged soil. Feel the soil to determine the ideal time to water.

Feeding Freddie Calathea

Feeding your Calathea Freddie helps it push out lovely leaves. Fertilize using a balanced, water-soluble plant food every two weeks. Only fertilize Calathea during spring and summer when the plant is actively growing.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
