5” Calathea Medallion - This plant prefers low to medium light with access to enough indirect sun to maintain its beautiful colouration. When grown in low light, the colours may begin to fade, but don't be discouraged. Moving your calathea medallion plant near bright indirect light will often restore it to its original beauty. Avoid direct sunlight as the leaves are tender and can burn. Water the Calathea thoroughly until water runs freely through the bottom of the pot. Empty the saucer or catch basin after it drains. Never allow this plant to sit in water as this can cause soggy soil, leading to root rot and other fungal diseases.
