Calatheas displaying curling leaves are under watered and/or are not receiving enough humidity. Older lowers leaves can sometimes turn yellow, which is natural, but if many do then overwatering could be an issue.
Browning leaves are most likely caused by dry air and a need for higher humidity.
Limp stems can be a serious issue caused when the plant is overwatered in cold temperatures. This can eventually affect and kill the whole plant if not attended to quickly.
