Extra Large Peacock Plant
We're thrilled to introduce this beautiful new Calathea to our collection! The Calathea makoyana is also called and Calathea Cathedral Window. We love the latter name, believing the semi-translucence of this plant's leaves are what makes is so special.
Each leaf is marked with green-brown patterns and tiny contrasting veins, which run across the underside like delicate geometric tracery. Our Operations Manager likens the Calathea Peacock's leaves to butterfly wings, which is also apt!
Originating from the rain forests of Central and South America, the Calathea makoyana likes indirect light, warmth and humidity (which can be replicated through misting). It can also transpire and act as a natural humidifier in your home. Plus, the big leaves, covered in tiny pores will trap VOCs in the home.
Pets: Happily, this is a pet-safe plant!
Growing Pot Size: 27cm diameter x 25cm height. Overall plant height (including growing pot) is approximately 50-55cm (but this will increase as the leaves 'pray').
