Calathea Makoyana, also known as the Peacock Plant, is a tropical houseplant with beautiful foliage, featuring oval-shaped leaves that are green with a striking pattern of dark green, light green, and pink stripes. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Calathea Makoyana prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Calathea Makoyana likes to stay moist, but be careful not to overwater it, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Calathea Makoyana likes high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-75°F (15-24°C).

  5. Soil: Calathea Makoyana prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.

  8. Propagation: Calathea Makoyana can be propagated by division. Carefully separate the plant into two or more sections, making sure each section has roots and leaves, and plant them in separate pots.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Watch out for pests like spider mites and mealybugs, and treat them promptly if you notice any. Also, be careful not to overwater the plant, as this can lead to root rot.

Calathea Makoyana is a relatively high-maintenance plant that requires some attention, but its beautiful foliage is well worth the effort.
