A beautiful easy to care for houseplant that'll bring colour and texture to a small space such as a work desk or coffee table. 'Freddy' is a smaller growing Calathea with silver, slightly ruffled leaves and deep green striping, that slightly curve along the veins. It enjoys bright indirect sunlight, so is prefect for an indoor window sill but is tolerant of lower light conditions. It likes a regular light misting.
Generally they like the soil to be moist. This means watering the soil well and allowing the plant to drain off the excess water. Plants allowed to sit in water or kept too wet develop root rot very easily.
