Calathea makoyana Peacock is an exotic plant with beautiful oval leaves in contrasting green and red-purple colors. Along the leaves are bold, decorative, feather-like markings that resemble a peacock's tail, hence the name!
Originally from Brazilian rainforests, Calathea Peacock can thrive indoors with proper care. It makes a wonderful choice for a houseplant and can light up any living space. This plant also helps to purify the air and eliminate common toxins.
Peacock plant can grow up to 2 feet in height and its stunning foliage with bold markings can grow up to 12" in length.
Peacock plant needs bright, indirect, or filtered light. Too little light can stunt its growth and harsh direct sunlight can burn its leaves.
This plant has medium water requirements. Aim to keep the soil relatively moist but not waterlogged.
This houseplant prefers soils that can retain moisture but still drain well. You can mix your own soil with 2 parts peat and 1 part sand or perlite.
This plant thrives in temperatures of 60°F-75°F and a high humidity level (over 60%). Mist your plant and use a humidifier when the weather is dry.
This plant should be fertilized once per month during the growing season (spring/summer) with diluted houseplant fertilizer.

When you purchase online, your plants have to go through lots of stress while traveling so they may need a few days to adjust to their new environment and thrive. If your plant does not perk back up after a few days of care, let us know and we will send replacements free of charge. Remember that we always try our best to accommodate you.
It’s advised that you should repot the plant as soon as you get it. After repotting, your new houseplant will most likely struggle with transplant shock. It may appear droopy, faded, or have a slower growth rate than usual during this time. This is completely normal, and it’s also normal for transplant shock to hit especially hard after repotting a brand-new houseplant. To make sure your plant has plenty of time to adjust to its new surroundings, wait a day after potting and water your plant. Make sure any excess water drains completely from the pot afterward. Monitor your soil’s moisture levels daily to start creating a watering routine. To help perk up your new houseplant, we recommend adding a little water-soluble fertilizer, compost, or sugar water to your soil to boost its nutrients and help it grow.
