Calathea makoyana

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!

pet friendly


Calathea makoyana is also known as the Peacock Plant and you can see why with her showy, striking foliage. Makoyana has beautiful oval-shaped green leaves with darker green stripes on top and deep purple markings beneath. Talk about a statement plant!

We love Makoyana because she looks different when you’re standing and sitting. You won’t get bored of this beauty and her non-toxic foliage means she’s pet-friendly too. She will happily grow throughout your home on office desks, fireplaces, shaded windowsills, or outside in a tropical garden shady spot.

Calathea like to dry out before having a drink, so hold off watering until the soil is dry on top. Learn how to care for your indoor plants via our blog 'The quick start guide: Indoor plants'

Quick Facts

  • What to use me for: I make a statement on table tops, office desks or filling the understorey space in a warm shaded garden.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 45cm in height

  • Where to place me: I enjoy shade and dappled light. I’m not a sun worshipper.

  • How far to space me: Give me 25cms of elbow room

  • Soil Conditions: I like to dry out before having a drink. Wait for an inch of dry soil in my pot before watering me.

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for the shadier parts of your garden or as an indoor plant.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door.
