Q.My Calathea Lutea Is Yellow
I was given a calathea lutea by our gardener at the office. It wasn’t potted and I’m not sure if it was just pulled out from the ground or came from storage. I potted it when I came home but the stems already turned yellow. The leaves are still green but folded. Will this still live?
