Calathea White Fusion Plants for Sale Online
Calathea White Fusion is a tropical plant known for its darkly patterned leaves contrasted with light green, white, and lilac stripes. The unique, gracefully arching foliage resembles a delicate and elegant peacock tail. The plant is also known as White Fusion Peacock Plant or Zebra Plant.
Ideal conditions for the White Fusion plant includes a medium to bright indirect light, a well draining soil, and high humidity levels. The White Fusion has been named one of the more high maintenance Calathea plants to grow. However, as long as you stick to their desired care regimen, you can easily keep this plant alive.
The most common problems people have with this indoor plant revolve around its sensitivity to the minerals in tap water. Additionally, this plant requires a moist soil with just the right amount of light. Some other steps to include in your Calathea plant care regimen include keeping a consistent room temperature above 60 degrees Fahrenheit and applying a well-balanced fertilizer blend in the growing seasons of spring and summer.
We recommend planting your Fusion in a pot with drainage holes and watering your plant when the top inch of the soil has dried. You never want to leave your plant sitting in water for an extended period of time, as this will often lead to root rot.
Cleaning your plant's variegated foliage with an organic neem-oil based spray can help to avoid pest infestation issues like spider mites. If the leaves of your White Fusion begin turning brown, we recommend checking your plant for pests and root rot. Planting your Calathea in a well draining potting soil will help you avoid this issue.
These plants are also particularly sensitive to direct light and would do best in east or west facing windows.
