The ideal spot for a prayer plant will receive medium to bright indirect light. Calathea musaica can handle low light, but increased light can help maintain the vivid colors and patterns on the foliage. Aim to have your Network Calathea receive 4-6 hours of indirect sunlight daily as this will help it develop into a full and dense plant! Direct sunlight can be damaging and may cause colors to fade. The more filtered sunlight your Network Calathea receives, the more likely it will develop new growth!

It may be best to water the plant using filtered or distilled water
