Calathea repot
Ok give me advice on repotting my Calathea white Star. The roots are starting to come out the bottom!

Best soil mixture? I'm afraid to mess with her 🀣🀣

I would not disturb the roots at all when repotting to avoid transplant shock. Calatheas have roots on the thinner side so they’re easy to break.
Just plop it into the new pot as is and the roots will find their way to the new soil.
I bet @wolfwoman will have a great answer. I have mine in a peat moss, perlite, and potting soil mixture.

But I've only repotted mine once. 😬 I'm no expert.
Your plant looks lovely!! Far better than mine! My go-to mixture is succulent mix, perlite, and a little peat. A good all-around mixture. I'm sure you'll choose well. Good luck!
