The Colorful Knight of your Round Table

The Rose Painted Calathea’s green elliptic leaves are striped in soft brushstrokes of pink from the midrib outward. As the plant matures, the pink stripes turn to white. The leaves grow from the top of the stalks, and can reach up to 30” high.

As undemanding as they come, the Calathea prefers to be kept indoors, or on balconies and patios. Make sure to find a spot away from cold drafts or direct sunlight. For optimum growth, keep the soil moist.

Caring for your Prayer Plant

Taking good care of any plant is essential to ensure it grows appropriately and blooms. You need to take care of several things, such as the amount of water you need to give the plant, the best way to propagate it, and the kind of fertilizer you need to use. Here is a complete care guide you can use.


This plant enjoys medium and bright indirect light. They should not be placed in direct sunlight as that can damage the plant significantly. You can set the plant in a room with a window and get reasonable amounts of indirect light. Ideally, these plants grow under large trees in their natural habitat. Therefore, they need indirect but good amounts of light. If your plants do not get enough sunlight, they will produce smaller leaves and stunted growth.


Calatheas enjoys a well-draining soil that can be a mixture of potting soil, peat, and perlite. You can mix lighter soils such as coir or pumas. Experts recommend avoiding the usage of heavy soils as they are not well draining.


It is vital to give your Prayer plant a balanced amount of water. The plant is susceptible to water. They do not deal well with too little water or too much water. If you do not give the plant enough water, its leaves will dry out, and if you overwater it, the roots will start to rot, which can cause the plant to die.

The soil of the Calathea needs to be moist at all times. You can check the moisture in the ground with your finger. Your plant likes a humid environment, so you can try to keep humidity levels high using a mist, and the plant will thrive.


The Calathea requires regular fertilizer during its growth stages. You can give it fertilizer every two or three weeks when the growth is in full swing. The best fertilizer match is chemical or organic fertilizer. It is best to avoid any fertilizer during the winter as that can be shocking for the plants in their dormancy. 

Common Issues

If you do not take good care of your prayerplant, it may face many issues such as pest infestation and other diseases. Let’s look at all the common problems you must be aware of.


Spider mites are the most common pests to infest the Prayer plant. Other than that, they may also attract aphids and or scale insects. If these pests infect your plant, you might see yellow leaves and other visible spots on the surface of the leaves.

To control the pest infestation, you can use insecticidal soap.


Root rot is the most common disease in the Peacock plant. If you overwater it and do not choose well-draining soil, then that can cause your plant’s roots to rot. To avoid root rot, you should only water your plant when scorched. You can check for dryness using your finger.

Other than that, bacterial growth in your plant may suffer from Pseudomonas Leaf spot. This can cause a reddish-brown spot on the leaves and distort them. To treat this problem, it is best to cut off the damaged leaves so that the bacterium does not spread.


This plant does not require you to prune it very frequently. All you need to do is to keep an eye out for all the damaged and wilted leaves. Removing them from the plant will help improve your plant’s growth, as only the healthy parts of the plant will get the nutrients.


You can propagate the Peacock plant when it grows big. You can multiply it by root division. You can do it during the springtime as that’s when the plant is waking up and is in its active growth period. Be sure to separate it naturally.

Potting / Repotting

You can re-pot the plant during the spring and fall. It is best to re-pot the plant every two years or if you think the pot is full of roots. Choose a slightly bigger pot for the re-potting.

    This order of a large calathea is my first order from Plantvine. I was totally taken aback by the size and fullness of the plant. Have never, ever seen one this size. I am so impressed by it and other possibilities at Plantvine. It is now my “go to plant place” from now on. Delivery was also super fast and the plant was perfect. No damage at all during shipping. Thanks to all at Plantvine, Peggy Maki

  21. Anonymous (verified owner)

    I was sent an email to expect the quality of the leaves to be a little less than ideal. But the size and health of the plant is very good, so I’m hoping it will grow happy. I appreciate how careful and weather-conscious the company was about shipping, but it seemed like a simple warm pack could have made it easier to ship earlier.

LOVE the colors

These plants are mesmerizing and I love them. Hopefully, I will have better luck with them.

It’s pretty and my app said I could keep it alive in my apartment. I’m trying to have a bunch of plants.
