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 dryer 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.
