 Calathea mokayana, commonly known as the Peacock Plant, is a popular houseplant cherished for its vibrant foliage and large, oval-shaped leaves with intricate markings and patterns that resemble the feathers of a peacock. The upper side of the leaves displays a beautiful combination of green hues, while the undersides feature a striking purple color. 

Calathea makoyana is not only admired for its striking foliage but also for its unique characteristic of folding its leaves upwards in the evening, resembling hands in prayer, and reopening them in the morning. This behavior adds an interactive and dynamic element to the plant's display.

Calatheas prefers a spot with ample humidity. If leaf edges begin to curl or brown up, mist them with lukewarm water on a regular basis. Your bathroom or kitchen are perfect spots for your Calathea because these areas tend to be more humid. 

Botanical Name: Calathea makoyana 'Peacock Plant'

LIGHT: This will do best in medium to low indirect light. Never allow this plant to receive direct sunlight, the leaves will burn.
