Plant Bio

Calathea Musaica ‘PP0005’

Calathea Network (known botanically as Calathea musaica ‘PP0005’) was bred and patented in The Netherlands. The breeder has granted us exclusive rights in North America to propagate it. Differing from standard Calathea musaica, this selection features more strongly pronounced veining. Network also grows more compact than the species, producing shorter leaf petioles. Its ancestors come from Brazil, so it likes warm, humid conditions (making it a perfect plant for a well-lit bathroom or kitchen). Network is also known as Goeppertia kegeljanii ‘PP0005’.
