Calathea Makoyana is highly desirable, difficult to find.
Water: Keep soil evenly moist at all times, but not soggy. Use distilled or rain water because Peacock Plant is sensitive to fluoride and other chemicals in many public water supplies.Think little and often as a watering policy.
Light: Calathea need plenty of diffused light however direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose their markings.
Humidity: Requires moist air (aim to maintain 60% relative humidity around the plant). Set pot on a tray of wet pebbles and mist leaves frequently with room-temperature water. If indoor air is extremely dry during the winter months, it's a good idea to use a cool - mist room humidifier.
