WATER: Wait until the top layer of soil is dry before watering. Do not over-water and reduce the amount given during winter months. This plant enjoys a humid environment and will thrive in bathrooms and kitchens. Mist regularly.
CARE: Remove dust with a damp cloth to unblock pores. This will help the plant breathe.
PETS: Your Velvet Calathea loves pets. This plant has been classified as non-toxic to cats and dogs.
FACT: Calatheas are ideal for removing toxins from the air, caused by cleaning products and modern furnishings which are made of synthetic materials.

It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%, it’s just the pesky plastic top from our ‘anti-roll system’ left to replace). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but at least we sleep well at night!
