Calathea Sanderiana 《粉双线竹芋》Watering
Calathea Sanderiana requires regular watering. You do not want to allow the soil to completely dry out between waterings as this can damage the foliage and eventually kill the plant. Instead you should feel the plant and as the top two inches of soil begin to feel dry you need to water your plant. Even though they like regular waterings you definitely don’t want your plant sitting in soggy soil or still water so make sure your plant pot has drainage holes.
This is a sensitive plant and can sometimes be affected by regular tap water. If you notice scorching on the leaves that you can’t explain then consider switching to filtered water.
