Ive heard so many horror stories when it comes to this calathea and how they just die, well not for me i guess! I barley water it, water when i remember more or less.. but its happy!!
This is why it's so happy! People think they need to baby them when it comes to watering, but they get root rot real quick if you truly keep the soil as "evenly moist" as the internet would have you believe it should be.
Could be! I have lots of calatheas just but next to a humidifier with little watering and they thriiive! When they look a lil sad i water, i think people make it up to be so much harder than it actually is!
Agreed! Humidity matters for sure, but other than that I don't think they're as needy as the internet would have you believe. They like to be ignored as much as the next plant... It's just hard with calathea because they're so pretty!
Yeah mine has died twice but it's a warrior, I'm waiting again to regrow... don't over water it
I just got an Ornata, it's still pretty small though. How many leaves does yours put out in a month?
Maybe 5-10 leaves, i dont keep track of it but it grows pretty quickly haha
My Ornata is mad at me right now because I cleaned her leaves. She's high maintenance, but I love her. Yours is beautiful!
Oh no, what did you use?
I used distilled water and a soft cloth.
My ornata hates me, you must be a plant whisperer!
you have the magic touch!
Don’t give her to much credit she could turn on you😂
I’ve heard so many incidences were the Oranta was fine and just one day decides that it don’t want to live anymore🙃
Orantas are such a drama queens !
Good luck with her!!
Hahaha! That was my other calathea somedays ago, yelled at it cuz i was mad- them the next day it was fine haha!
It got scared and stopped the drama 😂😂
