Calathea Vittata



We can’t get enough of these pinstripe leaves! This green and white beauty gives a modern feel to any collection. Calathea vittata, also called Goeppertia elliptica, is native to South America and primarily grows in the Rainforest understory. This means it’s well adapted for low to medium light, making it a great plant to sit near (but not in) a window. For best results with any calathea, use only filtered water and a peaty potting soil that will retain some moisture.

Care Tips for Calathea vittata

Fertilizer: 20-10-20 or 20-20-20 applied every other watering. Higher fertilizer levels may attract pests.

Light: Light levels should remain between 650-750 foot candles. If light levels are too high leaves can become scorched.

Soil: Choose a coir or peat-based media with good drainage for quick root development. Ideal pH is between 5.5 to 6.5.

Humidity: Ideal humidity levels are between 70-80%.

Temperature: Plant grows best between 70°-80°F range. During the cooler months when the temperatures falls below 65° the plants will grow more slowly, and fertilization rates need to be reduced.

Disease & Pests: Some common issues for these plants include fungus gnats, spider mites, and botrytis. Good watering and sanitation practices will help avoid these problems.
