Hi!

I've never really used sites like these but my Calathea plant has curled leaves and some of them are even drooping, but I can't seem to find out what's wrong with it. I've tried many different things to try and get it to unfurl but nothing has seemed to work. I've tried moving it to a shadier spot, more/less water, checked for a disease, repotted it, I even put it in my bathroom for a bit to see if the steam from my showers would help, but none of it has.

This was my first plant I ever bought and I would really love to see it bounce back with its beautiful leaves!

If I can get any help that would be amazing! Thank you!

Plants react slowly to change and yours has gone through a lot of changes so it is hard to tell just what is causing the leaf curl.

How do you decide when to water it and how much do you provide?

Does the sun ever fall directly on the leaves during the day?

When you repotted, did you remove some of the original soil?
