Calathea makoyana, also called the Peacock Plant or Cathedral Windows, has stunning dark green leaves with lighter green feathered markings and purple undersides. The distinctive, darker markings on this plant’s pale green leaves are said to resemble a peacock’s tail or cathedral windows. This would make an ideal houseplant or in a shady spot of your garden. It can reach a height of 2'.
Light: Bright or medium, indirect light is preferred.
Water: It's best to keep the soil continuously moist, but not wet. Use distilled water, rain water, or allow your tap water to sit out over night before using it (they don't like fluoride in the water). It likes humidity but you can also get away with misting it regularly.
This plant originates from the rainforest, so the best way to keep it happy and healthy is to mimic that environment. The three basic rainforest plant rules are: no direct sunlight, high humidity and do not expose to cold temperatures.
