Calathea Medallion Plants for Sale Online
Calathea Medallion is a popular indoor plant loved for its large show-stopping foliage and unique leaf coloring.
The Calathea Medallion plant has darkly patterned leaves with light green stripes in a more rounded shape than the other Calatheas. Formerly known botanically as the Calathea Roseopicta, the Medallion has recently been reclassified as 'Veitchiana.' These tropical plants enjoy a medium to bright indirect light and high humidity levels for optimal growth.
Additional care tips for these gorgeous trending houseplants includes watering the plant when the top inch of the soil has dried and potting in a planter with drainage holes. Calathea plants will also benefit from a well balanced fertilizer blend in the growing seasons of spring and summer.
In general many types of Calathea have gained a reputation of being high maintenance. However, if you follow a few simple guidelines, your calatheas will grow effortlessly. We recommend avoiding tap water and using distilled water. It's also best to avoid placing your plant near cold drafts and keeping the overall room temperature above 60 degrees Fahrenheit.
Signs that your Calathea may be in distress include yellow leaves and brown edges. If your plant is exhibiting these symptoms, we recommend checking your plant for pests like spider mites, and reevaluating your plant care practices.
