Calathea Rosy, or Calathea Roseopicta, has one of the most colorful and stunning foliage in all houseplants. This plant stands out with large oval-shaped pink leaves and dark green edges. The blend of pink and green color has a water-color effect and gives Calathea Rosy a dazzling beauty.
Calathea Rosy can grow up to 2 feet in height. This plant is also great at purifying indoor air and removing air pollutants.
In winter or early spring, Rosy produces small white to purple flowers. These flowers grow between the leaves.
Rosy prefers bright, indirect light so put it in a bright room a few feet from a window. Avoid harsh direct sunlight to prevent sunburn. Calathea Rosy tolerates some low-light conditions, but it needs bright light to maintain its colors.
This houseplant needs regular watering about once or twice a week to keep its soil slightly moist. Water when the first inch of the top soil is dry.
This plant needs well-drained soils that are nutrient-rich, and able to retain some moisture. Choose a peat-rich potting mixture.
This Calathea Roseopicta Rosy thrives in temperatures of 65°F-75°F and grows well in normal room conditions. It does not tolerate temperatures below 60°F. Rosy needs a high humidity level (at least 60%). Use a humidifier and mist your plant if needed.
This plant should be fertilized once per month during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer. You can also feat this plant with a slow-release fertilizer once or twice per year.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
