CALATHEA MAKOYANA MAINTENANCE
CLEANING AND PRUNING THE CALATHEA MAKOYANA
It is recommended to spray the Calathea several times a week, or even daily, in order to clean their leaves and repel insects and spiders.
If one of the older leaves dries up or turns yellow, don't worry, it happens. You can cut it at the base.
REPOTING, CUTTINGS, DIVISION OF CALATHEA MAKOYANA
Calathea Makoyana doesn't need any specific soil, you can use potting soil for green plants indoors. So when the oldest leaves turn yellow, your plant no longer grows or when its roots come out of the bottom of the pot, you can repot your Calathea. To do this, take a pot with a diameter two or three centimeters larger and transfer your plant! Don't forget to scrape the soil at root level so that it is replaced by your new potting soil.
Calathea cannot be cut, however you can divide when repotting.
Yellow leaves can be caused by many factors, however the most common cause is overwatering, unless you tend to forget to water your plant. It can also be natural, your plant separating from its old leaves. You can then repot.
The leaves curl up or turn brown.
Be sure to water when the soil dry on the surface. Also remember to place your Calathea in an environment that is not too dry.
