Why we love this plant

The makoyana is hands down our favourite Calathea! Also known as the Peacock plant, it has a distinctive feathery display. Typically found in the tropics, Calatheas will thrive in more humid environments. As well as being beautiful, Calathea are great air purifiers and each has a 'praying' movement as light levels change. Calathea are non-toxic.

Plant care: Calathea


Your Calathea can tolerate moderate-shade but will appreciate bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sun.


Keep your Calathea’s soil a little damp, ensuring good drainage.


Your Calathea is a humidity lover, mist your plant to keep it happy or situate in a steamy room like the bathroom.


During warmer months, houseplants are actively growing and will appreciate regular plant food. During colder months, a plants growth rate slows down and so they often need less water.
