CARE of Prayer plants (Calahea):

Place the Calathea in a spot with partial shade without direct sunlight. Too much sunlight is harmful to the plant and will lead to brown edges on the leaves. It is best to give the Calathea small amounts of water regularly. In the summer period it is wise to water the plant twice a week. Reduce watering in winter. It is important that the Calathea is placed in slightly moist soil, without a layer of water forming at the bottom of the pot.

As mentioned, the Calathea can be kept well in the house. This plant will provide the house with color in places where other plants do not like to be.
In addition to the living room, of course, it fits perfectly in dark locations in the house, such as in the hall.

Fun facts about the Calathea:

  • The leaves of some species of Calathea seem to have eyes, such as on peacock feathers. That is why the plant is nicknamed peacock plant.

  • Did you know that there is also a flowering Calathea? That is the Calathea crocata, it has flowering spikes with yellow/orange bracts.

  • In addition to leaves in all kinds of green tones, the Calathea sometimes also has purple-red or silver accents.

  • Calathea symbolizes a new beginning. That meaning is derived from the English expression 'to turn a leaf', which is what the plant does when it gets dark.

  • Did you know that plants love music? They are especially fond of low frequency sound waves, below a thousand Hertz. So quiet tunes.

  • In the Amazon region, the leaves of the Calathea are used as roofing material, as a material for weaving baskets and as medicine.

  • The Calathea is known as one of the most air-purifying houseplants. That makes him a healthy guest.
