Your Calathea Shinestar will do best in medium to bright indirect light. Never allow this plant to stand in the direct sunlight—the leaves will get sunburned! For best results, maintain a regular watering schedule and keep your Calathea Shinestar moist, but not wet or saturated. This is not a drought tolerant indoor plant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges.
