Our Peacock Calatheas comes in a 15cm Nursery Pot.

The Peacock Calathea is a stripy wonder! Its deep green veins on a pastel green backdrop create quite the statement. Part of the Prayer Plant family, Burle Marx likes to close its foliage at night, only to open it up again in the evening. A nice quirky trait.

Coming from the Brazilian rainforest, Burle Marx will add a fresh, tropical feel to any environment. This Calathea is sure to remain high up on everyone's indoor plant Wishlist with its care-easy characteristics. Provided it is placed in an area with good light and high humidity, it'll thrive for you.

Pair this stunner with a sleek modern planter to make a fabulous statement piece on a sideboard or tabletop. 

 Please note: Calathea is not toxic, but prefers not being made into a salad.
