For this week's Botanical Inspiration, I'm sharing Calathea, a fancy foliage plant. Having admired my mother-in-law's Calathea for some time now, I decided to buy one for our place. Its intricate foliage pattern and color makes it a stand out botanical in any space, but one that's not so easy to care for. If you tend to over water your plants, Calatheas may be a perfect fit for you, but if you're like me and let the plants dry out between waterings, they may not be the botanicals for you. They require bright indirect light and evenly moist soil. Even the most attentive plant person may be challenged by this one. Do you own a Calathea?
Calatheas are so pretty, it's absolutely worth it to give them a shot in your home!
