The Calathea Makayona, also known as the Peacock Plant, is a beautiful tropical houseplant, famed for its beautiful, contrasting green and purplish-red leaves that will brighten up any indoor living space. It can grow to be approximately 24" tall and wide.
Calatheas are tropical plants and thrive in a bright and humid environment with indirect sunlight. Ideally, keep calatheas close to south-facing windows and within temperatures of 65 - 75°F (18-23°C). This plant doesn't like to be in completely dry soil, so make sure to water it before it dries out too much. During the winter months, it is important to keep the plant watered but allow the topsoil to dry out in between watering. Water when the soil begins to dry or keep the topsoil moist in warmer months.
