I've had this calathea medallion about 7 weeks now and it was doing well. Then the leaves started curling so I endured it was near a window not receiving direct light. Initially I was watering w tap water and I notice the edges were brown. Can I save my pleno? I live in a hardiness zone of 8 so I'm wondering if I should place it outside on my shaded porch.

How dry does it get before you water and how much water do you give it?

Definitely increase the humidity.
A humidity tray and regular misting with warm water will help. Smiling
