Propagate Calathea Roseopicta

It is not difficult to propagate a Calathea roseopicta, but there is only one practical method: division. Calatheas do not reproduce by cuttings, and growing seeds is slow and time-consuming.When a plant has a lot of young plantlets, it's time to divide it. Here is the steps to follows:

1. Unpot the plant gently.

2. Separate the Roseopicta clusters with care. With each new plant, include roots and at least one leaf.

3. Plant in a compact, tight-fitting container. Use the same soil mixture as the parent's.

4. Keep the soil wet and provide mild indirect light to the young plant. If the humidity is low, make a transparent plastic container around the plant to boost it.

5. When new growth appears, gradually remove any tenting and resume usual maintenance.

Calathea Roseopicta Pests

Common houseplant pests are attracted to all plants simply because that is what they are composed of. Mealybugs, aphids, scale, and spider mites are some of the pests that may visit your plants. Aside from cotton balls soaked in alcohol, the safest technique to remove them is using mild insecticidal soap.

Common Problems


1. Curled leaves. If your plant's leaves curl inward, you may not be giving it enough water. Water the soil regularly but not excessively.

2. Drooping leaves. Droopy leaves on the Rose-Painted Calathea will indicate a lack of humidity. If the problem persists, consider purchasing a humidifier.

3. Leaves with brown tips. This is just another indication that your plant requires more humidity.

4. Weak stems. This might signal that your Calathea is either overwatered or too chilly. Remember to feed this plant plenty of water and nurture it in a warm place.
