Calathea Makoyana Care Guide

Light Requirements:

These plants do well in bright environments. Avoid any sunlight as this will burn their very tender leaves. 

Watering needs:

Calatheas do enjoy being kept evenly moist – but not so much were they are standing in water for long periods of time.  You can allow just the top to dry out a little. Regarding water – try and let the water stand over night so that the chlorine dissapates – otherwise filtered or borehole water is just perfect! 

Humidity requirements:

High humity is always best for these tropical plants


Try and fertlize Calatheas at least every two to three weeks in spring and summer and hold back in the winter which is usually their dorman period. An general water soluable fertilizer would do great. 


At least every two years, you will need to to upsize the pot and give him a fresh mix. They require a well draining soil mixture that has medium moisture retention. 
Try and only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil and it’s always good practice to add in Perlite  that will assist with good grainage and peat moss, or coir husk that will hold in some moisture.

Nice to know:

These plants are mildy toxic so keep Fluffy away!
