Calathea musaica ‘Network’ has beautifully decorated leaves and is an unusually graceful plant for any home! An easy plant to care for but do not allow it to dry out. Calathea network is one of the most interesting, among the 300 different types of Calathea plants, with the unique mosaic-like markings on the leaves.
A Calathea plant likes bright indirect light. Too much direct sunlight will burn the leaves. It can grow in partial shade as well. Calathea network likes warm temperature and doesn’t like cold drafts. High humidity is a must for this plant. You can use a humidifier close to the plant or place the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water. It is very sensitive to water quality. Use distilled water, rainwater or allow your tap water to sit out overnight before using it. Keep the soil moist and don’t let it sit in water, which means the soil requires good drainage. Feed the plant from spring to autumn once a month with general houseplant feed diluted to half the strength.
