Recently Shipped Calathea makoyana, Peacock Plant


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.

Why others chose the Calathea makoyana, Peacock 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!
