As Showy and Flamboyant as its Namesake

The distinctive markings on this plant’s pale green leaves are said to resemble a peacock’s tail. Also called “Cathedral Windows,” a dark green feathered pattern runs from the leaves’ middle to its outer edges. When new leaves sprout, the undersides show off vibrant pink hues.

Originally from Brazil, Peacocks thrive in high humidity. Some gardeners mist frequently, others believe in placing bowls of water around the plant. It’s also recommended to group the Peacocks with other humidity loving plants. In optimum conditions, the Peacock will grow to 2 ft. in height.

    I am so pleased with my Peacock Plant! When it was first delivered the box was damaged and I was afraid that the plant would be a big mess! But to my surprise it was just gorgeous! Thanks to the way it was packed so securely there was very little if any damage to the plant. The first 2 days it was in shock but it only lost two leaves. Now it is standing up so strong and pretty! I love my new plant and I hope to find another strange plant on your website soon! Y’all at PlantVine are definitely my favorite plant place!

    This is by far, the healthiest plant I have ordered online during this pandemic, and I have ordered from two other sites! I love looking at this plant at different times a day because the leaves actually move up and down a lot! My calathea was packaged very well and had NO dead leaves upon arrival 3 days after shipping. Will be ordering from Plantvine again in the future and recommending to family!!

Why others chose this plant.

Someone gave me a peacock plant around 5 years ago, and I have loved it so much that I wanted to send one to a friend! It is very hardy, keeps its shape nicely without growing too quickly, and is just gorgeous with its multi-colored veriegated leaves.

Wanted one from Plantvine, because their plants are awesome!

My favorite calathea. The leaves look like someone carefully drew out all the tiny lines with a pen. This is my first calathea from plant vine but the one I was lucky enough to find at the grocery store has been so hardy, by calathea standards. The different shades of green and pattern are mesmerizing.

How tall will it get? I’m looking for tall vibrant plants!

The full height will be between 2 – 4 feet but depends on the growing conditions. A bigger pot and plenty of light will help if you want it bigger!
