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!

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!
I recently ordered two plants from Pistils. I’ve never ordered plant on line. I was REALLY impressed. The company kept in contact about delivery and when they arrived( on time)both plants came well packed and very healthy! They are beautiful. I am a very happy customer and will definitely but from Pistil again!
I just love this one! It arrived in great condition and is growing beautifully.
