Calathea makoyana Peacock Plants for Sale Online

Calathea makoyana, also known as peacock plant and cathedral windows plant, features purplish coloring on the undersides of leaves, with white and green on top. It does exceptionally well in low light areas. It is a part of the Marantaceae family and likes bright, indirect light at most, as the colors will fade, and the leaves will burn if exposed to too much direct sun.

To learn more about the Calathea Family of plants, read our blog on Calatheas.
