Caring for a Calathea Roseopicta (commonly known as Rose Painted Calathea) involves a few straightforward steps. Here’s a simple, numbered guide:

1. Light Requirements
   - Provide bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can damage the leaves.

2. Watering
   - Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry.
   - Use distilled or rainwater if possible, as Calathea Roseopicta is sensitive to chemicals in tap water.

3. Humidity
   - Maintain high humidity levels around 60-70%. Use a humidifier, place the plant on a humidity tray, or mist the leaves regularly.

4. Temperature
   - Keep temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature changes.

5. Soil
   - Use a well-draining potting mix. A mix of peat moss, perlite, and potting soil works well.

6. Fertilizing
   - Feed every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer.
   - Do not fertilize in fall and winter when growth slows.

7. Pruning
   - Remove any yellow or dead leaves to maintain the plant’s appearance and health.

8. Repotting
   - Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant outgrows its pot, typically in spring. Refresh the soil to provide new nutrients.

9. Pest Management
   - Monitor for common pests like spider mites, aphids, and mealybugs. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

10. Leaf Care
    - Gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and improve photosynthesis.

By following these simple steps, you can keep your Calathea Roseopicta healthy and vibrant.
