Figuring Out Calathea Indoors - February 2022
Below is a look at one of the mature, existing leaves. These all had brown tips that I trimmed off and have been monitoring them since that haircut. I believe this was a due to a couple of things: too much low-light and improper watering. Pretty sure this was a mixture of OVERWATERING and UNDERWATERING.
Below, you can see the current container. One of the 'lessons learned' here is related to that very plastic nursery container: I've drilled a series of holes in the sides of it because it was getting too wet and water-logged. With the holes and keeping it out of a secondary container, I've struck the right balance of watering and allowing it to dry out in between.
