  • FAQ about Calathea Orbifolia Care:
    • When is the best time to repot my Calathea?
      • Calatheas enjoy ‘close quarters.’ The best time to repot your Calathea is when it has entirely filled its current pot and is on the border of becoming rootbound. As far as timing is concerned, repot your Calathea in the spring-time for the best results.
    • Is the Calathea Orbifolia toxic to cats?
      • All Calatheas have been rated by the ASPCA as non-toxic to cats, dogs, and horses.
    • What's Calathea Orbifolia’s growth rate?
      • When cared for properly, Calathea Orbifolias have a moderate growth speed. They can reach a height of 3 feet tall, and their beautiful leaves can reach a length of 1 foot. Remember to give your Calathea Orbifolia the proper mixture of fertilizer (monthly at 1/4th strength) during the Spring-Summer to encourage a healthy growth rate.
    • How can I prevent brown edges on my Calathea Orbifolia?
      • Low humidity is the most common reason for brown edges on Calathea Orbifolia. Place your plant near a humidifier or in the most humid room of your home (like the kitchen or bathroom). Another cause for brown edges on your Calathea Orbifolia is water contaminants. Water your plant with distilled water or tap water that has set out for 24-hours.
    • What’s the common name of the Calathea Orbifolia?
      • The Calathea Orbifolia is also known by its common name, The Round-Leaf Plant (or Round-Leaf Calathea). It should be noted, Calatheas, in general, are also often referred to as “Peacock Plants” and “Prayer Plants.”
