Not for faint of heart but this is an easier Calathea than my others. Lots of humidity, filtered/distilled room temperature water. Keep moist.

So far I love this plant. It’s a little dramatic when it comes to where it’s sitting in my house and how much water it gets. But with that being said, it’s super pretty and worth it.

Thrives when there is plenty of humidity (around 60%) - I use a pebble tray to help regulate the humidity. I only had it for a couple of months but it’s going strong, only a few small leaves at the base have got brown tips. Pretty good plant overall

The way the leaves move with the day is cool. I’ve read these are temperamental but I haven’t had any issues whatsoever. I keep it in my sunroom which gets daylight all day, I let it dry out between waterings and it’s been growing new leaves for a year. I didn’t rotate it at first (I was completely new to houseplants) so it grew a bit unevenly but it’s filling in and getting bushier.

I loved how pretty it was but It’s not surviving it due to my lack of plant parent skills.

lil Tjay is stunning when you get close and focus on him. He’s tiny, so it’s easy to overlook him. Fortunately he doesn’t need much attention, and I when he does get your attention, he can hold it easily.

Wow this gal is finicky. Nothing I was doing was making her happy, and her leaves were browning constantly UNTIL I put her in my bathroom. My husband takes super hot showers and once in awhile I’ll put her in there for a sauna with him 😂 Now she’s growing quickly and she’s thrilled. Humidity is key with this one!

i love this calathea! i think the key to making these guys happy is high humidity - a daily morning mist is what keeps mine super happy, she’s always putting out new leaves. gorgeous foliage!

Puts out 1-3 leaves every 1-2 weeks so it’s a fast grower, easy to take care of but it’s best to water with distilled water to prevent minerals from building up in the soil.

The peacock Calathea is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. The foliage is stunning and ties together any room. When considering a calathea please research their humidity needs. Mine live in the bathroom because my home is not humid enough for these beauties. But my bathroom now has the most beautiful plants to pull it together.
