Calathea is a gorgeous tropical foliage houseplant that is a relative of the Prayer Plant but with larger, oblong to oval, showier leaves, often variegated in several hues of green, white, silver, pink, and purple. It makes an excellent table top plant. Peacock Plant, a.k.a. Cathedral Windows, a.k.a. Calathea makoyana, originates from Brazil and is a popular houseplant due to its beautiful foliage and bold markings. Its name comes from the elegant impression it makes, much like a peacock's tail, with leaves that are pale green with a dark green, feathered effect that spans from the middle of the leaf to the outer edges. As new leaves grow, they emerge rolled up to show off their pinkish-red undersides. Grow in medium, indirect lighting 6-8' from a sunny window, middle of a bright room, or in 12-14 hours of fluorescent lighting. Prefers cool to average household temperatures of 65-75 degrees Fahrenheit. Keep soil evenly moist to slightly dry. Supply extra humidity by setting on a shallow tray of moistened pebbles. Feed with a slow-release indoor houseplant fertilizer from April-September per package instructions.
