Famed for its breathtaking contrasting green and maroon leaves, with a pattern which resembles the sublimity and vibrancy of a peacock’s feathers or stained glass windows, the papery foliage of the Calathea makoyana sits atop slender, tall stems. This plant will add an intriguing sense of dynamism to your interior.


Native to Eastern Brazil, the Calathea makoyana can be found on the tropical rainforest floor where little light trickles through the heavy canopy. At night, the leaves fold and lower, then rise and spread out during the day. This habit lends the Calathea its alternate name, Prayer Plant, due to its opening and closing motion, which in turn maximises light absorption.
