Calathea 'White Fusion' Description

Calathea 'White Fusion' features leaves that are a work of art—each leaf is uniquely patterned with a blend of white, green, and lavender. The leaves are lance-shaped and the variegation is quite variable, which adds to the plant’s appeal. The underside of the leaves is a soft purple, which is typical of many Calathea species. This plant's stunning appearance makes it a standout in any indoor plant collection.

Care Plan for Calathea 'White Fusion'

Light: This plant thrives in medium to bright, indirect light. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves and fade the vibrant variegation. Too little light can cause the plant to lose its variegation and become more green.

Watering: Water the 'White Fusion' when the top inch of soil becomes dry. Ensure the soil is evenly moist but not waterlogged, as Calathea plants are prone to root rot if overwatered. Use distilled or rainwater to avoid leaf spotting caused by minerals in tap water.

Humidity: High humidity is crucial for maintaining the health of the 'White Fusion'. Aim for 60% humidity or higher. This can be achieved by using a humidifier, placing the plant on a pebble tray with water, or regular misting.

Temperature: Keep temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid drafts, sudden temperature changes, and exposure to extreme cold, which can stress the plant.

Child and Pet Safety: Calathea 'White Fusion' is non-toxic to both pets and humans, making it a safe choice for households with children or animals.

General Tips: Fertilize every month during the growing season with a diluted, balanced, water-soluble fertilizer. Rotate the plant occasionally to ensure even light exposure, which encourages balanced growth. Regularly clean the leaves with a soft, damp cloth to remove dust and help the plant photosynthesize effectively.
