How to Care for Calathea white fusion
Before you buy a Calathea White Fusion Plant, make sure to read about the care instructions that are recommended to keep this plant healthy and thriving.
How much light does my Calathea White Fusion Plant need?
Calathea White Fusion does well with bright, indirect light. An eastern or northern facing window would be ideal. A western or southern window would work, as long as a curtain or blind prevents direct sunlight from touching the foliage. You can also use fluorescent light instead of sunlight, and your Calathea will thrive and survive just the same. The fluorescent light mimics the effects bright indirect sunlight has on your houseplant.
How do I water my Calathea White Fusion?
Calathea White Fusion plants like to dry out occasionally between watering. They will tolerate staying moist but prefer not to have constantly wet soil. Calathea White Fusion appreciates humidity; a pebble tray or window in the kitchen or the bathroom would suffice. Be careful you don't overwater your Calathea because it could lead to root rot disease and cause serious damage to the root system.
What type of fertilizer is best for my White Fusion Peacock Plant?
Any all-purpose fertilizer will work for White Fusion Peacock Plant. Indoor houseplant fertilizers fall into two groups: water-soluble, liquid quick release, and granular, slow-release fertilizers. Any fertilizer offers nutrients that help plants transition to a new environment. We offer a one-year warranty on our plants when you purchase Bio-tone at checkout and use it per label instructions.

What Kind of Soil Does My Calathea White Fusion Need?
Calathea prefers to be kept in consistently moist soil conditions. However, it is vital to give them well-draining soil to avoid soggy or waterlogged conditions. Over time this could result in rot root disease. We suggest making your soil mixture to best serve your houseplant. Use peaty, airy, lightweight potting mix including perlite, orchard bark, and any standard potting soil.
