Calathea 'Green Goddess' Description

Calathea 'Green Goddess' features large, oval-shaped leaves that are a striking, bright green color. The leaves often have a subtle wave to the edges and may exhibit a faint pattern along the veins, which adds depth and interest to its appearance. The undersides of the leaves are typically a lighter green, providing a beautiful contrast when the leaves move. Leaves will change color under different lighting environments

Care Plan for Calathea 'Green Goddess'

Light: This plant thrives in medium to bright, indirect sunlight. It can adapt to lower light conditions, but its growth might slow, and the leaves may lose some of their vibrant color. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water the 'Green Goddess' when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Ensure the soil remains consistently moist but not soggy. Overwatering or allowing the plant to sit in water can lead to root rot. Calatheas are sensitive to chemicals in tap water, so use distilled or rainwater when possible.

Humidity: High humidity is essential for the Calathea 'Green Goddess', reflecting its natural tropical environment. Increase humidity around the plant using a humidifier, misting regularly, or placing the plant on a pebble tray filled with water. This helps prevent the leaf edges from browning.

Temperature: Maintain indoor temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid drafts, sudden temperature drops, or exposure to cold, which can stress the plant.

Child and Pet Safety: The Calathea 'Green Goddess' is non-toxic to both pets and humans, making it a wonderful addition to homes with children or pets.

General Tips: Fertilize monthly during the growing season with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength. Rotate the plant periodically to ensure even growth. Clean the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove dust and enhance the plant's ability to photosynthesize efficiently.
