DescriptionCalathea Crocata, also commonly known as the Eternal Flame due to its yellow flowers, will make a colorful and exotic addition to your home. This plant is native to Brazil and tropical America. Due to environmental damage it is hard to find in the wild nowadays. It likes humidity and warmth. Not lower than 60ºF (16ºC). It will do well in a room temperature as long as there is a high level of humidity. The temperature in the room must be stable, and not change much.Eternal flame likes to have an even amount of water. It is especially important during the summer months, when it is warmer. The best for potting the Calathea Crocata is soil based potting compost with some peat moss (around 25%). Remember to allow the water to drain easily.Prune at the base, where the leaf meets the stalk. You can cut the brown edges of the leaves with scissors. They will grow back naturally. However, if your plant has a lot of half-brown leaves it might be a sign of over or under watering.
