You naturally want to keep such a unique houseplant beautiful and healthy for as long as possible.
Humidity - About the most important thing in the care of the Calathea Warscewiczii is to ensure a high humidity. Why? In the natural habitat, the humidity is around 90%. The air here is much drier. This problem is quite easy to avoid. You have to spray the leaves every day with the plant sprayer. Set the plant sprayer to the mist setting and mist the leaves until they are completely wet. This can be done with tap water, but this often leaves white spots on the leaves. This is the lime that remains after the water has evaporated. You can easily wipe this off again.
Others choose to put the Calathea Warscewiczii in the bathroom.
Location - The Calathea Warscewiczii is a plant that needs a lot of light to keep the leaves beautiful. That is why choosing a location is so important. Place her in a spot with plenty of daylight, but never where direct sunlight can hit the leaves. Direct sunlight causes leaf burn in the form of black spots on the leaves. Always avoid large temperature fluctuations. These are caused by a draft, an air conditioner, an open window or a radiator.
