Calathea Rosy, or Calathea Roseopicta, has one of the most colorful and stunning foliages in all houseplants. This plant stands out with large oval-shaped pink leaves and dark green edges. The blend of pink and green color has a water-color effect and gives Calathea Rosy a dazzling beauty.
Calathea Rosy can grow up to 2 feet in height. This plant is also great at purifying the indoor air and removing air pollutants.
In winter or early spring, Rosy produces small white to purple flowers. These flowers grow between the leaves.
Rosy prefers bright, indirect light so put it in a bright room a few feet from a window. Avoid harsh direct sunlight to prevent sunburn. Calathea Rosy tolerates some low-light conditions, but it needs bright light to maintain its colors.
This plant needs regular watering about once or twice a week to keep its soil slightly moist. Water when the first inch of the top soil is dry.
This plant needs well-drained soils that is nutrient-rich, and able to retain some moisture. Choose a peat-rich potting mixture.
This plant thrives in temperatures of 65°F-75°F and grow well in normal room conditions. It does not tolerate temperatures below 60°F. Rosy needs a high humidity level (at least 60%). Use a humidifier and mist your plant if needed.

Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
