To help promote a tropical climate, you’ll want moderate to high humidity. You can use a humidifier or frequently mist the plants.

Also known as the Peacock Plant, this plant is notorious for being a 'diva' due to its high demands for humidity. Be sure to keep away from air conditioning vents and cold drafts. From the forest floor, they are low light tolerant but will thrive in bright, indirect light. Keep out of direct sunlight as it will burn the leaves. Try to use filtered water and keep the soil consistently moist, never soggy. To clean the leaves, use a damp cloth and neem oil to help keep pests away.

Calathea 'roseopicta'

Also known as the Zebra Plant, this distinctive calathea is very popular due to its purple underside. On the more difficult side of houseplants, they do not like any environment that is too hot, too cold, too dry or too wet. Try to keep this plant in bright, indirect light and out of direct sunlight as that will burn your precious leaves. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. If your leaves start to brown or droop, that is a sign you are under-watering. Misting is a must and if you can, try to set the plant on top of a pebble tray filled with water.

Calathea 'White Fusion'

On the more difficult side of Calatheas, the white fusion is super sensitive to its environment. A humidifier is essential to keeping this plant alive since they like high humidity. If you don't own a humidifier, misting using a pebble tray is your next best bet. This plant can tolerate low light, but for more variegation, place in bright, indirect light. Keep the soil moist, watering when just the top layer of soil is dry, but be careful not to overwater. If you have damaged leaves, simply just cut them off and allow your plant to revert its energy to the healthy leaves.
