The Calathea Makoyana, otherwise known as the Peacock Plant because of its stunning green design on the top of the leaf and purple underside, needs bright, indirect sunlight, temperatures of 60-75°F (16-24°C), and high humidity. Water when the soil surface starts to dry with filtered water. Fertilize with a dilute, balanced fertilizer every 2-4 weeks in the growing season, and pinch back the stems to create a fuller, bushy plant. Because these plants need good drainage, re-pot once every 2 years using a peat-based soil mix.
