Stachyphrynium repens is part of the Marantaceae family but is it's own genus.  It closely resembles Calathea (Goeppertia).  Native to parts of Asia, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.

This particular species grows from rhizomes and has longer, oval shaped green leaves with black markings on them.  This plant is the only species in the genus Stachyphrynium with variegated leaves.

Stachyphrynium repens care:

This plant prefers a well draining soil that is rich in organic matter.  Allow the soil to dry out about halfway before watering, taking care to not let it sit in excess water or remain completely dry for long periods of time.  Provide your new Stachyphrynium repens with plenty of bright indirect light.

Additional info:

Calathea, which are commonly referred to as a "Prayer Plant", is a genus of flowering plants in the family Marantaceae. Most Calathea species will fold their leaves up at night, similar to praying hands.

Calathea are collected and prized for their uniquely patterned foliage. You'll find all types of colorful foliage within this genus, from bright pink neon to deep red to yellow and white -- Calathea has it all!

Calathea do flower, but they tend to not be very showy or colorful.

You'll find that your Calathea will be happiest with above average humidity and medium to bright indirect light.

Recently, up to 200 former Calathea species were reclassified into the genus Goeppertia.
