This calathea adds a bold, almost surreal look to the indoor garden, standing two feet tall and wide with precisely patterned leaves.

This Peacock Plant could be mistaken for its Prayer Plant cousins, as they all belong to the same family, and all have a habit of folding their leaves upward at night. However, this calathea has precisely patterned, two-toned leaves that are generally green on top with reddish undersides, and can grow up to two feet tall and wide. The leaves are also larger than a maranta's foliage, averaging 10 to 12 inches long. Native to the Brazilian jungle, the Peacock Plant does best in a well-lit room out of direct sun, and away from air vents. Browning tips or edges on the leaves may indicate too dry an environment. Running a humidifier will solve the problem, or simply place the pot on a pebble-filled saucer with water only half way up. As is true of calatheas, this variety is totally pet-friendly.
