Calathea makoyana ‘Peacock’ Prayer Plant
Larger Size added! Calathea's are one of our most loved plants, they are know as Prayer Plants and are a bit temperamental needing the right mixture of humidity and indirect lighting. They are also great as they are pet safe and non-toxic. This plant has the classic "Calathea" pattern with painted like zebra stripes on the inside and a gorgeous light green/yellow color that complements the deeper pattern. There are hints of purple and pink from the stem and backs of the leaf to give it a gorgeous overall texture and color that is perfect for any collection.
Available in the following packaging based on your preference:
- Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4 or 6-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
- Selene Planter - Porcelain 6-inch pot ceramic marble planter with drainage hole and matching rose gold ceramic tray. The planter measures: 7.5" x 6.5" x 6.5" and weighs approximately 3.7 lbs. We recommend placing your plant in the nursery pot inside it to make it easy to water and transplant.
If your plant needs added humidity our Plant Mister would make a perfect addition to your plant shelf for both function and beauty.
