About Calathea Musaica
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! 😴
Goeppertia kegeljanii 'PP0005'
Also known as
Network Calathea kegeljanii, Calathea musaica, Calathea musaica 'Network', Calathea musaica 'Network and Calathea Network

Select your region to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Calathea Musaica in your home 🏡.
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 Musaica after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
