Calatheas are known for their bold patterned foliage. The leaves of most Calathea varieties fold up slightly during the night time, revealing the often colorful undersides of their striking leaves.

Strong indoor non flowering plant 40 cms


Your Calathea Beauty Star prefers medium to bright indirect light—so placing it in front of an east, west, or north window is ideal. Direct sun burns the leaves and causes the beautiful leaf colors to fade.


For best results, water your Beauty Star deeply and then allow the top 1” of soil to slightly dry out between waterings. However, extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges. Overwatering will cause the plant to wilt and it will recover slowly.


Like many tropical indoor plants, your Beauty Star prefers a spot with ample humidity. Brown edges on the leaves indicate the air is too dry. Mist the leaves twice per week with room temperature water.


Your Beauty Start enjoys the warmth, preferably between 65-85 degrees. Maintain indoor temperatures above 60 degrees and avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.


For best results, use a general houseplant fertilizer every four weeks during the spring and summer. No fertilizer is necessary during the winter when plant growth naturally slows.


Your Calathea Beauty Star is non-toxic to cats, dogs, and humans.


If you notice a tip or edges of your Beauty Star are burned, often with a yellowish hue, it could be due to your tap water. To solve this, use distilled water or allow your tap water to stand overnight before watering so the chlorine and fluoride can evaporate. Remove any yellow leaves to keep your plant strong and growing. Do not use any shine products on the leaves, instead, clean leaves occasionally with a damp cloth.
