Calathea Makoyana (Peacock Plant / Prayer Plant)


The Peacock plant has all the elegance and beauty of a Peacock’s tail, which is why it has been given its rather glorious name. The leaves are pale green with a dark green feathered effect from the middle of the leaf to the outer edges. When new leaves grow they are rolled up and show off their pinkish-red undersides; giving it another splash of color.


Originally from Brazil, this plant is a popular choice around the world for a house plant mainly because it makes a lovely tropical vibe to your home due to its beautiful foliage and outstanding markings.


Humidity is best for this plant. Misting regularly or having a pebbles tray helps.  It is recommended to use distilled or rain water as the fluoride can cause damage to the delicate leaves (brown and crispy edges).
