The Calathea Makoyana has the elegance and beauty of a peacock tail, which is why it got its rather glorious name. The leaves are light green with a dark green feathery effect from the center of the leaf to the outer edges. When the new leaves grow they are coiled and show their pinkish red undersides, when they emerge they are light green and darken with age. The Makoyana is pet-friendly and prefers a bit of shade, so she's the perfect choice to brighten up an otherwise dull corner. Fun fact: She is also known as the Praying Plant because she closes her leaves at night.
The Calathea comes from tropical areas in America such as Brazil and Columbia. Calatheas also bring clean air! In your home, significant amounts of harmful gas particles are trapped by the leaves of this plant and they give oxygen in return! The climate in the house is better for everyone by using these plants. These air-purifying plants are suitable for homes, schools and offices.
