Additional Information

History and introduction of Calathea makoyana:

Native to Brazil, Calathea makoyana is found in slightly moist soil with bright, indirect light. The soil, while moist, drains quickly so that the roots don’t constantly stay wet. Thus, the plants like some humidity and can survive with little to no direct light. The leaves move upwards, near vertical, come nighttime when the light is no longer available. Many have hypothesized why some plants do this, but there is not a consensus.
