Calathea plants are very sensitive to water quality. We recommend watering with spring water. The soil should never remain soggy. Watering calatheas from the bottom is often helpful. This is accomplished by submerging the pot in an inch or two of water and allowing the soil to soak up the water. This allows the plant to be watered but does not soak the crown of the plant.
