Iggy likes medium to bright indirect. She doesn't like direct light as this will burn her leaves. She will also tolerate shade and low light conditions making her an easy choice for most people.
Watering you Calathea
In the summer from March to September keep Iggy's soil moist, we recommend watering twice a week. Watering Wednesday and Soak Sunday.
In the winter from October to February reduce watering to once a week. Houseplant watering guide
Use rain or distilled water to make Iggy extra happy.
Humidity for your Calathea
Iggy likes room humidity to be around 60%. Normal room humidity is around 40-50%. To increase humidity you can use a Humidifier, place Iggy next to other houseplants or you can fill a saucer with pebbles and water, place her on top of this.
This isn't a necessity but for best results from March to August give Iggy some houseplant fertiliser every month when watering.
Repotting your Calathea
When the roots start to grow out of the bottom opening of the pot, it is time to put Iggy into a slightly larger pot.
Calathea Care Problems
Browning leaves, not enough humidity or water is too hard. Use rainwater or distilled.
If Iggy starts to look a bit shabby, you can cut some of her leaves off to promote new growth especially the lower leaves.
