Calathea makoyana - Peacock Plant

$ 12.00
Size

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.

 

PLANT CARE

• 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!

WHAT TO EXPECT

You'll get a healthy Calathea makoyana that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4"  or 6" nursery pot – Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos - 6" plant shown.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Pretty plant!

I’m new at caring for plants but this plant came unharmed and perfect! I love it and hope I give it the care it needs.

Excellent quality

My plants were shipped in a timely fashion and arrived with no damage. I only wish they had more plants in stock, as I have not been able to order the plants I want for over a month, as they sell out before I can even respond to the emails telling me they are back in stock.

What a Beaut!

My plants arrived very well packaged and in solid condition. It's been two weeks and my calathea is doing wonderful! Very happy with my first purchase from Pistils!
