Calathea like consistently moist soil but do not allow the roots to sit in water or in very wet soil. Little, often and consistently is a good watering policy for these.
As with most variegated plants, Calathea need plenty of diffused light however direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings.
They like high humidity levels. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Pop it in the shower room from time to time to give it an extra boost.
