The Calathea likes a bright, semi-shaded location, but no direct sun.
Regular spraying with water contributes to its well-being.
During winter the Calathea needs less water.
Symbolism, colours & shapes
Look at the leaves of the Calathea. They are wavy, corrugated and have round, pointed or oval shapes. There are even more things to report: As soon as the sun rises, the magnificent leaves open to catch the sunlight and close again in the evening. This is why Calathea symbolizes a new beginning.
The Calathea was discovered in the primeval forests of the Amazon region. To be exact, it was found in the shady areas under the dense vegetation. So a little shadow doesn't bother your Calathea at all. Go ahead if you want to put it in a shady corner in the bathroom, hallway or bedroom. But don't be frightened by the nocturnal plant movements.
