This particular species thrives under bright, indirect light. Placing it near a north or east-facing window is an ideal spot to ensure it receives sufficient light without being exposed to direct sunlight, as this can lead to leaf burn.



Calathea Rufibarba enjoys consistently moist soil, but be cautious not to overwater. Allow the top inch of the soil to dry out slightly between waterings. Additionally, using room temperature water or allowing tap water to stand for at least 24 hours can help eliminate chemicals harmful to this plant's sensitive roots.



Maintaining proper humidity levels is vital for the health of your Calathea Rufibarba. These plants thrive in higher humidity environments, misting of the leaves, especially during dry winter months, will also help maintain humidity levels.



Fertilizer every two months during the growing season is essential for promoting optimum growth and vibrancy. Be sure to dilute the fertilizer to half the recommended strength to prevent fertilizer burn.


Remove the brown or damaged leaves( as they will not turn green again).
