Light: Calathea orbifolia does best in medium to bright indirect light. Be sure to protect the large leaves from any direct sun as they will burn.
Water: Maintain a moist soil without allowing it to become soggy in the Spring and Summer. Your calathea orbifolia will require less frequent watering in the cooler months. Calathea orbifolia, like all Calathea, needs added humidity to truly thrive. This can be accomplished by adding a humidifier, keeping it in a well lit bathroom, or providing a pebble tray underneath the plant.
