Let $P$ be a graded poset of rank $r$ and let $\mathbf{c}$ be a $c$-element chain. A plane partition on $P$ is an order ideal of $P \times \mathbf{c}$. For an order ideal $I$ of $P \times \mathbf{c}$, its rowmotion $\psi(I)$ is the smallest ideal containing the minimal elements of the complementary filter of $I$. The map $\psi$ defines invertible dynamics on the set of plane partitions. We say that $P$ has NRP (`not relatively prime') rowmotion if no $\psi$-orbit has cardinality relatively prime to $r+c+1$. In recent work, R. Patrias and the author (2020) proved a 1995 conjecture of P. Cameron and D. Fon-Der-Flaass by establishing NRP rowmotion for the product $P = \mathbf{a} \times \mathbf{b}$ of two chains, the poset whose order ideals correspond to the Schubert varieties of a Grassmann variety $\mathrm{Gr}_a(\mathbb{C}^{a+b})$ under containment. Here, we initiate the general study of posets with NRP rowmotion. Our first main result establishes NRP rowmotion for all minuscule posets $P$, posets whose order ideals reflect the Schubert stratification of minuscule flag varieties. Our second main result is that NRP rowmotion depends only on the isomorphism class of the comparability graph of $P$.
