Lovely tiny calathea; due to its mini size this is suitable for a terrarium but also makes a lovely little gift as an addition to someone's houseplant collection.

For best results, maintain a regular watering schedule and keep the soil damp, but never wet or saturated. This is not a drought tolerant plant, but the top of the soil should be allowed to dry out a little between waterings. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges. Overwatering will cause the plant to wilt.
Likes medium to bright, indirect light. Enough bright light will encourage growth and more variegation on the leaves. Too much direct sun burns the leaves and causes the colors to fade.
Like many tropical indoor plants, this plant prefers a warm and humid spot. Brown edges on the leaves indicate the air is too dry. Mist the leaves with room temperature water.
