If you love patterns, you'll swoon over Calathea makoyana. The Calathea genus boasts some of the most spectacularly decorated foliage in the plant world, and C. makoyana is no exception. Its pale green leaves are patterned with thin lines and larger ovals of dark green, making them look almost like feathers. For this reason, Calathea makoyana's nickname is "Peacock Plant." The undersides of the leaves are dark purple, and the mature plant grows to around a half meter tall, occasionally putting out a show of tiny white flowers.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top few centimeters of soil dries out
• Considerations: Like most Calathea, the makoyana does not like to dry out. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive. Pet friendly!
