The Calathea concinna known as the Calathea Freddie is a Brazilian native tropical plant. This is among the Prayer Plant Calatheas, which spread their leaves with the sunrise to absorb the sun. In the evening, the plants withdraw the stripped leaves to get a restful night.
Freddie prefers medium to bright indirect light—so placing it in front of an east, west, or north window is ideal. Too much direct sun burns the leaves and causes the beautiful leaf colors to fade.
Water your Calathea when the top 25% of soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.
