How do you remove dead leaves from Calathea?
To prune away dead leaves from your Calathea, start by removing any leaves that are completely withered, snipping them at the base of their stems with sharp, sanitized shears. Then clean up crisping tips or edges – you don't need to cut off the entire leaf if only part of it is dead.
Should I cut off dried Calathea leaves?
Either over- or under-watering your plants may cause leaf edges to brown. Trim away brown leaf edges with scissors by following the natural curve of the leaf. It is not necessary to remove the entire leaf, as it will continue to grow even after trimming.
How do you get new leaves in calathea?
Don't be afraid to cut the leaves off to the bottom of the stem—this encourages healthier growth to appear. Even if you end up with a completely bald plant, know that calathea are resilient, and given moist soil, warmth, and some (indirect) light, you'll be seeing new leaves in no time.
