Calathea makoyana - Peacock Plant

$ 12.00

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.

Calathea makoyana prefers medium to bright indirect light, and should be shielded from direct sun. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry. This plant loves humidity, so mist periodically or keep on a pebble tray.

Ships in a 4" or in a 6" plastic nursery pot. Each 4" pot has one clump; leaves measure about 3-5". Each 6" pot has 1-2 clumps; leaves measure about 4-6". Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur.

Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately. Product photography shows a 6" specimen. Includes detailed care instructions.


Items in our Specimen Plants collection require special pre-shipping preparation, and ship within 3-5 business days. You'll receive a shipping notification email with tracking when your order ships. Box warmer included at no additional charge as necessary during cold months.

This is my second Peacock Plant!

I loved the first one I ordered from Pistil’s so much, I ordered a second one. It arrived happy and healthy, wrapped extremely well with little to no soil out of the pot.

Gorgeous Plant

I'm totally mesmerized by this plant. It's beautiful & in the evening its leaves stand up like it's a victim of a bank robbery. They lift up from the base! Very happy with my purchase.
