INDOOR PLANT - Calathea Makoyana in 9cm pot
If you've collected the more 'common' indoor plants, think devils ivy, rubber plants, monstera, snake plant etc, and are looking for something a bit more intricate, delicate and a tad more challenge then let us introduce you to Calathea's! Commonly called prayer plants due to the way their leaves move during the day to capture the sunlight. At night they stand up straight!
Prayer plants, for which they're are up to 50 species of, vary from dark green velvety leaves to leaves with intricate patterns and purple undersides have some of the most stunning foliage out there! Many Calathea's require lower light than other popular plants, and with the proper care, they bring colour, geometry—and movement. We would not recommend a Calathea as a first plant but for you more experienced plant parents browse our range of beautiful Calatheas and let your Prayer Plant addiction commence!
This Brazilian beauty, the Calathea Makoyana, has all the glamour of its peacock namesake - and like the peacock it unfurls its new leaves to show off colours front and back; shades of green in front, rich maroon behind. In sunlight leaves appear to shimmer gold.
