Calathea Makoyana (Peacock 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 colour.
- CARE GUIDE -
Light: Indirect sunlight is best suited for this species. Direct sun will damage the leaves and low light will slow growth, so a bit of balance is required.
Water: You should water your plant when the first couple of inches of soil are dry. Poke your finger in the soil to check its dryness. Water through and let it drain. Do not let the soil stay waterlogged as this may cause root rot.
- GROW UP TO -
The plant you will receive will be close to the one in the picture. As living creatures, like us, they all grow differently, are individuals and slightly different. Which is excellent!
If you choose pot size 200mm the plant will be anywhere between 30-35 centimetres in height (from the top of the pot).
In your home, in the right conditions, they can grow up to 0.75 metres in height!
Plants come in nursery growing pots. Decorative pots, the plant is photographed in is not included in price. However, we are sourcing cool decorative pots and they will soon become available :)
