Calathea Medallion AKA Calathea Veitchiana is arguably one of the most beautiful low-light plants. They are pretty popular to plant enthusiasts because of their large, "medallion" like leaves: a brilliant green pattern on top, and a deep burgundy underneath. Observe your Calathea Medallion plant during night time because some Calathea Medallion varieties fold up slightly during the night time, revealing the colorfully striking leaves. They require a bit of extra TLC to keep this plant happy and healthy.
Thrives in medium to bright indirect light, but can tolerate low indirect light.
Water every 1-2 weeks, allowing soil to dry out half way down between waterings. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light. This plant can benefit from extra humidity. Calatheas can be sensitive to hard tap water. Try using filtered water or leaving water out overnight before using.
