Calathea White Fusion
Is an impressive tropical species commonly grown as a houseplant for its striking variegated foliage.
Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil is dry. When watering, water the plant moderately and slowly from above, allowing water to soak through to the roots, then tip out any excess water. Be sure to avoid soggy soil. Note: The White Fusion Calathea is very sensitive to fluoride in water. If using tap water to water the plant, first let the water sit overnight in a container for the fluoride gas to dissipate into the air. Alternatively, you can use filtered or bottled water.
Calathea prefers indirect light. Morning sunlight is fine, but it’s best to avoid intense afternoon sunlight.
Unhealthy Plant Signs
Curling or spotted leaves means the plant is not getting enough water. Browning leaves mean the plant needs a more humid environment. Over-watering or cold weather can lead to rotten and limp stems. During winter, the plant should be watered less frequently. Fading leaf color means the plant is getting too much direct sunlight. Be sure to cut off brown, crispy, or damaged leaves to keep the plant neat and healthy.
