calathea makoyana 

'Peacock Plant'


This plant prefers a light indirect spot indoors, too much direct sunlight and the foilage may become faded. For watering, think "water little & often" - they like their soil kept moist but they are not happy when left in soggy soil or sitting in a saucer of water.  They like to have their leaves misted every couple days to please their wax leaves. They like warm & humid environments but can fair well in a slightly colder than room temperature condition.
