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.

Plants arrival

I was very impressed how carefully the plants were packed for the shipping. All three I ordered are on fine shape and, hopefully, happy in the new home!!
