Also classed botanically as Calathea Orbifolia, the most critical care requirements for Calathea Orbifolia are adequate indirect light, proper watering, and well-draining soil. Get this right, and your Calathea Orbifolia houseplant will thrive, not just survive. Your Calathea Orbifolia needs to grow in medium to low light, protected from direct sunlight. You can tell if the light is adequate if you can read without straining your eyes. Repotting can really stress out a Calathea Orbifolia, so take it easy. Some specimens live for years in the same soil, but you don’t have to go to extremes: giving it fresh soil or repotting to a larger container (if needed) can be done every year or two. If you are seeing slower growth, it may be time to repot. It doesn’t like being rootbound. The damp conditions an Orbifolia needs can promote moisture-loving ailments like fungus, powdery mildew & leaf-spot, but their most important and most deadly vulnerability is root rot. Letting the topsoil dry slightly before watering is a helpful prevention
