FAQ about Calathea Medallion Plant Care:

  • How do you care for a Calathea Medallion? One of the most important factors in the success of your Calathea is humidity. Place your plant near a humidifier. During the spring-summer, water when the topsoil is dry to the touch. During winter months, water when the first ¼ - 1 inch of soil is dry. 
  • Why is my Calathea Medallion’s leaves curling? Dehydration is the #1 reason why Calathea leaves curl. How do you fix it? Bottom water your plant to fully saturate the soil. Leaves will gradually uncurl. For severe cases of dehydration, gently place your Calathea Medallion on its side for 15 minutes, flip to its other side for 15 minutes, and then set it right-side-up. Laying your plant horizontally will drive moisture to the leaves more quickly. Resume a normal, healthy watering routine.
  • Why is my Calathea Medallion drooping? Many factors can contribute to drooping. Firstly, ensure that your Calathea Medallion is in above 60-degree temperatures with no cold drafts. Secondly, drooping leaves can result from overwatering. Care for your Calathea Medallion by allowing the soil to dry out more thoroughly before rewatering.
  • Are Calathea Medallions poisonous to cats? All varieties of Calathea are non-toxic to people and pets, meaning that they are not poisonous to cats.
