Hi everyone,

My calathea warscewiczii is driving me insane, it always looks so unhappy! I recently moved it to the bathroom and started using a fertiliser to perk it up, it seemed to like the change and has been growing some new leaves.

But one of the leaves has dried out and shrivelled from the middle outwards. I cut it off but have now noticed another leaf doing the same thing! Has anyone got any ideas what this means? Will be so sad to see her lose another leaf Sad

Is it still in its plastic nursery pot?

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

How far away is the nearest window?

Fertilizer is more likely to aggravate any problem than help it.
