The Calathea Makoyana has sometimes been called the 'peacock plant' has impressive dark green, red and bright white marbled variegation on its small shrubby leaves that would be a perfectly unique accessory for any modern-design scheme. This simple display has the right amount of contrasting colour to catch the eye and never get old. Standing on slightly blushing, thick stems this plant is a great look for a dining room or formal area.

Calathea plants love greenhouse-like conditions with plenty of airflow. You should set your plant near a window where it will receive bright, but indirect sunlight. Never put your plant in direct sunlight or you risk scorching the leaves. If light levels are too low the plant will go dormant and stop growing.

Calathea prefers acidic soil. Using a peat-based potting mix with a pH of 55 to 60 is a great option, but you can also mix two parts sphagnum to one part loamy soil for a more homemade option. Make sure you keep the soil well-draining so you don't overwater your plant.
  • Our plants are provided in a plastic nursery pot. Any decorative pots or props are not included.
