Calathea in general can be known to be a bit tougher than you're run of the mill indoor plants; however, when provided with the proper care, your plant should thrive quite simply. Ideal care conditions for this gorgeous tropical houseplant includes higher humidity levels and allowing the plant's soil to dry in between waterings.

Additionally these plants will produce best results in an bright indirect light. However the Vittata will also tolerate a medium light.

Some additional tips we have when it comes to caring for your Vittata include avoiding tap water and opting for a distilled water. The plant will also benefit from an organic fertilizer in the growing seasons of spring and summer. We also highly recommend planting your new baby in a pot with drainage holes to avoid issues of root rot and mold.

Calathea vittata makes a good desk plant in the office, and because it moves and changes position during the day, it's almost like having a buddy in the office. It does like high humidity, so it's wise to occasionally mist the plant with clean, room temperature water.
