Calathea Musaica

(1 customer review)

£30.00

I’ve been looking to stock these for a while now. True to Calathea form the leaves on this are out of this world. The mosaic like pattern on the leaves hardly seems real. This one is a little different to the other Calatheas we’ve stocked in the past as this one doesn’t have purple undersides on it’s leaves, but that intricately decorated leaf is very in-keeping with the Calathea vibe. This one is definitely a stand out and you will get loads of comments on it!

Light : Your Musaica will like bright indirect sun however he is shade tolerant and will want to be out of direct hot sun.  

Water:  Sit your Musaica in moist soil – watering little and often will keep him from drying out but also will stop him from sitting in water – which he definitely won’t like. I always water my Calathea with rain water as a lot of them do not enjoy tap water. If you don’t have good access to rain water, you can fill your watering receptacle the night before you plan to water and leave it out overnight before offering it to your plant. 

Humidity: A rainforest dweller; this chap likes it moist, putting him in the bathroom, grouped with other plants or misting him will keep him sweet.

Temperature:Definitely keep him out of a draught, but your normal warm household temperature will be fine. 

Food:  You can feed him sparingly with watered down fertiliser during the spring and summer months. 

Toxicity:  Happy plant, happy pet, happy kids, happy life!

Dimensions 17 × 60 cm

Bleached leaves mean he’s been sitting in too harsh sun. Find a more shady spot and let him shine! 

Brown leaf tips mean he’s a bit dry and needs more humidity or that he doesn’t like your tap water. Try watering with rain water. 

He’s not growing could be that he’s too cold. Find somewhere warm for him and watch him flourish. 

Tiny leaves may signal that he’s not getting enough light, find that sweet spot and you’ll be laughing.

    The Calathea Musaica has such stunning leaves, like lots of (not so tiny) stained glass windows.
