The Calathea Makoyana or Peacock Plant as it is more commonly known is a wonderful plant that can be known to grow up to 2ft in height when cared for correctly. Also named Cathedral Windows. Originally from Brazil this plant is a popular choice around the world for a house plant mainly because it makes a lovely addition to any home due to its beautiful foliage and bold markings.

Peacock Plant Care

Temperature: Ideal temperatures required should be between 60ºF – 75ºF (15.5-24ºC). Avoid sudden drops that will affect growth and cold drafts.
Light: Indirect sunlight is best suited for this species. Direct sun will damage the leaves and low light will slow growth, so a bit of balance is required.
Watering: Water thoroughly during the growing season then naturally reduce during winter. Good drainage is important.
Soil: Use soil that holds moisture and drains well. A 2 part peat and 1 part sand or perlite mix will do the trick.
Re-Potting: Repot once every 2 years. During spring is best.
Fertilizer: Feed only during the growing season from April – October with a diluted liquid feed once every 2 weeks.
Humidity: Calatheas enjoy humidity in their natural climate. If you can try and raise the levels even if you just mist the plant or seat the pot on a tray of pebbles with water inside. When the humidity is low from dry air you may notice leaf tips browning.
