Rose Painted Calathea: Turn over a new leaf!

Beautiful Calathea is symbolic of new beginnings as in darkness, the plant will turn over a new leaf. The perfect gift for yourself or a friend who is at the start of something new. 

Care Level - Moderate 

Rose Painted Calathea will suit anyone seeking an easygoing plant also providing beauty and impact. Just keep an eye on soil moisture and light levels, and she’ll do you proud. 

How To Care For Your Rose Painted Calathea

  • Calathea likes lots of indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight which will cause the variegation of the leaves to fade. She can tolerate some shade but keep this monitored to support the vibrancy of her characteristic foliage. 
  • With watering, little and often is the best approach. Keeping the soil consistently damp is ideal for this plant. Damp but not wet!
  • In spring and summer, feed with a nitrogen-rich liquid fertiliser once or twice a month.
  • Ideal temperatures for this plant fall between 18-23°C - room temperature. In winter, avoid cold draughts from windows. 
  • Rose Painted Calathea loves humidity. You can boost humidity by regularly misting the leaves with clean water. If she needs rejuvenating, keep her in the bathroom for a while. 
  • Propagate by division once she has matured. 

Rose Painted Calathea - Common Problems and Questions

Help! The leaves of my Rose Painted Calathea are curling and spotty! 

This is likely to be a symptom of under-watering your plant. Remember, she likes damp soil and will prefer not to be left to dry out. Keep up a consistent watering routine and get a feel for when she’s happiest. However, there’s a big difference between damp and wet. Don’t go too far and leave her sitting in wet, soggy soil. Balance is key. 

Why are my plant’s leaves turning pale? 

Your plant is receiving too much direct sunlight. This will cause the variegation in the leaves to fade and lose their markings. Move to a more shaded spot and with time the variegation should bounce back. 

Leaves have started to drop from my Rose Painted Calathea, what should I do?

You’re likely to need to increase humidity levels. If it receives sufficient light, you could move your plant into the bathroom for a while. Here, the plant can absorb humidity from the shower. You can also give the plant’s leaves regular misting with clean water. 

Why have the leaf edges turned brown and crispy?

With Rose Painted Calathea, this is a symptom of watering issues. Especially as this plant is sensitive to chlorine present in tap water. Can you collect rainwater from outside? Alternatively, leave tap water to stand overnight before applying to the soil as this will allow the chlorine to dissipate. 

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
