Calathea 'Makoyana' is a bold and distinctive member of the Maranta family which is famed for its exciting appearance.
This plant also goes by the name of “Peacock Plant”, given its stunning patterning and coloration. Makoyana’s light green leaves are brilliantly colored with deeper olive green patterns, resembling the feathers of an exotic bird.
As the leaves are inspected closer, intricately and finely drawn stripes are revealed within the light green areas of the leaves.
Calatheas are members of the Marantaceae family, also called the Maranta, or Prayer Plants family. Many species of Prayer Plants feature leaf undersides of solid maroon. 'Makoyana' is a bit different in this regard, as its brilliant patterning is visible on both the top and underside of the leaf. This trait is what gives the plant its nickname 'Cathedral Windows', and by holding a 'Makoyana' leaf up to the light will illustrate this effect. As a Prayer Plant, Calathea 'Makoyana' will fold its leaves each evening, allowing you to enjoy its spectacular patterning from a different perspective.
