Plant Features

The Color Full® Medallion Calathea, commonly known as Calathea Medallion, is a highly decorative plant with large, round leaves that resemble medallions. The deep green, velvety leaves are marked with pink or white patterns that radiate from the leaf's central vein to the edges, and they have a rich purple underside. This plant is a popular choice for indoor plant enthusiasts due to its ornamental foliage and air-purifying qualities.

For troubleshooting the Calathea Medallion, common issues include browning of the leaf edges or tips, which can be indicative of low humidity or insufficient watering. Yellowing leaves may suggest overwatering or poor drainage. If the plant becomes leggy or the vibrant patterns fade, it might need more light. To keep the foliage vibrant, avoid direct sunlight, which can bleach and burn the leaves. Keep an eye out for common pests like spider mites, and maintain high humidity and good air circulation to prevent infestations.
