About Calathea 'Beauty Star'
Many of the houseplants we used to know as Calatheas now belong to the genus Goeppertia (say that three times fast). These plants have delightfully patterned leaves that come in all sorts of colors and shapes! Commonly known as prayer plants, the leaves of some species fold up at night through a process called nyctinasty meaning night movement! 😴

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Calathea 'Beauty Star' after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
Beautiful but definitely needs more upkeep than some other plants. I have three Calatheas and they all were on the verge of death this winter despite having a humidifier and relatively high temperature (indoors in New England, so 🤷🏻♀️). This has bounced back super quickly in the last month alone, though, so I think if you have the right conditions and the willingness to give it a little extra love, you’ll definitely enjoy!
