Calathea makoyana - Peacock Plant
If you love patterns, you'll swoon over Calathea makoyana. The Calathea genus boasts some of the most spectacularly decorated foliage in the plant world, and C. makoyana is no exception. Its pale green leaves are patterned with thin lines and larger ovals of dark green, making them look almost like feathers. For this reason, Calathea makoyana's nickname is "Peacock Plant." The undersides of the leaves are dark purple, and the mature plant grows to around 2' tall, occasionally putting out a show of tiny white flowers.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Like most Calathea, the makoyana does not like to dry out. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive. Pet friendly!

Well packaged plants
Timely shipping and arrival of our ordered plants. Well packaged. Really appreciated the thought and detail work. Would highly recommend!
I've ordered calathea's from a few other online shops, but this one arrived in by far the best condition of all of them. Everything was packaged very carefully and the plant arrived without any bent leaves or even loose dirt. I would definitely order more from this store!
