Home Calathea musaica
A beautiful evergreen species of Calathea with amazing leaf patterns resembling tiny mosaics. A relatively easy plant to care for but do not allow it to dry out. This one is ideal as a houseplant that is very much sought after.
This one likes to be kept relatively moist and grown in free draining potting mix or soil. Please do not allow this one to sit in water by allowing the drip tray to remain full in being planted in a pot.
Each plant measures 8cm in height and 8cm in width.
For WA, NT and Tas customers, an additional fee of $10 per order is applicable due to the requirements associated with quarantine compliance, including chemical treatment. Separate and additional costs are also charged by respective Departments of Biosecurity in WA, Tas and NT to inspect these plants upon their arrival. For more information on this, please check out the information on the FAQ section on this website and/or contact us direct.

As this was my first order with HoH I was a little nervous about the outcome. Being in Tasmania, I was concerned that there would be delays in shipping that would harm the plants (this was a risk associated with my location, not really in control of HoH). I was very pleasantly surprised when, after placing the order on Saturday night, the plants arrived on Tuesday, and in fantastic condition. It was obvious that great care had been taken to package them properly and to place them carefully in the shipping tube with space between them so one did not damage another, and spacing material in case they shifted in transit. I was very pleased with the condition of all three plants, and all have established quickly and remain happy and healthy.
I have seen others complain about receiving smaller than expected specimens. My plants were true to the described size - my musaica was in fact a little taller than 8cm, and almost double that with the significant root system. I suggest that you actually measure out how big/small your plant will be before you purchase so that you are realistic about the dimensions your plant is likely to be.
Am so happy with my purchase. Gorgeous plant, was wrapped very carefully as always. Love buying plants from here
