Calathea Misto

With its velvet-like leaves and stunning foliage patterns, Calathea Misto is the kind of Calathea that every admirer of the prayer plant will want to add to their ever-growing plant collection. Here’s a Calathea Misto care guide, including watering tips, how to propagate the prayer plant, and other general greenery care.

The velvety green leaves of the Calathea Misto sometimes referred to as Calathea Jungle Velvet, are characterised by their darker green banding throughout the leaves and deep maroon undersides (incidentally, the leaves look fairly similar to the, though are more velvet feel to the touch.

It is rather rare to encourage a Calathea plant to flower indoors and the houseplant instead is kept due to its striking and beautiful leaves. However, if your plant does reward you with some blooms, it will likely be in the late winter or early spring and the flowers are small white flowers on tall stems. Flowers will typically bloom for three to four weeks.

Best light conditions for the Calathea Misto

Though Calatheas are often advertised as being low light plants, this is simply not the case! While they can tolerate much lower levels of light than succulents, they should also not be kept in very dark spaces.

Close to a north-facing window or several feet away from a south-facing window in a corner of your apartment are both great placement options for the Misto. This particular Calathea variety is one of the fussier ones, together with the Calathea Orbifolia. If you’re looking for a good beginner Calathea prayer plant, then I recommend looking at the Calathea Roseopicta.

Best soil conditions for the Misto Calathea

Like every other Calathea variety, the Misto Calathea likes to be moist at all times and does not enjoy drying out between waterings. With this being said, the Calathea remains prone to root rot and so wants to be kept damp but not soggy. Be sure to purchase a well-draining mix that is specifically for houseplants, and if you can, one which is specifically formulated for indoor jungle plants.

Watering your Misto Plant

One of the most important aspects to consider when caring for your plant is its humidity levels. This is one of the top causes of browning tips in Calatheas. If you want even more tips on how to deal with browning Calathea leaf tips,
