Calathea ‘Medallion’ - Common Problems

The older leaves are turning yellow: This is a natural process that occurs as the plant matures. If the new growth begins to turn yellow, check the roots for possible signs of overwatering.

The tips of the leaves are turning brown: Calathea plants love humidity and dislike tap water. Up the humidity by misting or placing your plant on a humidity tray. In order to reduce fluoride damage, use distilled water.

The leaves are curling: This could mean the plant needs water, check the soil moisture and water accordingly. If the soil is moist, check the roots for any rot. 

Signs of Overwatering: New growth becomes soft and brown and the leaves begin to drop.

Common Pests: Spider mites, mealybugs, fungus gnats, and scale.
