Peacock Plant (Goeppertia makoyana)
Light Requirements: The peacock plant is closely related to the calathea, or is often categorized as one. They generally prefer a medium, indirect sunlight, but can tolerate lower-light conditions.
Watering: Allow top few inches of soil to dry out before watering again. The time frame may vary at 1 to 2 weeks, so it is best to feel the soil to see if it is still moist or not.
- This plant thrives best in high humidity. This means they can do great in terrariums, or near your shower. Otherwise, it is best to mist the leaves every few days.
- A common, mild problem calatheas (and like plants) can have is dry, browning leaf tips—but not to worry, this just indicates that it is not getting enough humidity.
- This plant is pet-safe.
