Just like a peacock, this beautiful Calathea really stands out from the crowd with its distinctive, coloured leaves in shades of red and purple, and decorative markings. Like other members of the Prayer Plant family, it also folds its leaves up when darkness falls of an evening.

Too much sun will be the downfall of the peacock plant causing its stunning colours to fade. It is also occasionally called Cathedral Windows.

Native to Brazil, humidity is best for this particular plant and it takes kindly to frequent mistings, too. However, as it is a little sensitive to the fluoride in tap water which can cause damage to its delicate leaves, make the effort to collect rain water for it when watering.

Nothing makes us happier than making you happy (cheesy, but it’s true) which is why we do everything we can to provide a positive plant experience from start to finish. Your plant should arrive fresh and healthy - if for any reason it doesn’t, we’ll replace it for free within 30 days!

Your plant has been on quite the adventure to get to you, so it might need a drink and some time to adjust to its new home. It’s perfectly normal that it may be showing some minor signs of stress after shipment.

If your plant is damaged beyond what you’d expect, let us know within 30 days, and a friendly member of the Plant Folk will be able to help you. All you need to do is take a couple of pictures of the problem area and one of the whole plant and send them to hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk. We’ll then make things right as quickly as we can, so you can get on with enjoying plant parenthood.

This plant is pet friendly

Over time, many plants have evolved to help them survive in the wild and avoid being eaten - clever right? This means if you're a pet parent, you'll have to be careful which plants you pick. If your furry friend is prone to nibbling, choose one of our pet friendly plants.
