The pet-friendly Peacock Calathea has beautiful leaf patterns, alluding to the showy, decorative creature it is named after. These leaves change positions slightly during the day in response to external stimuli, so you can admire the gorgeous patterns from any angle.

Plant Care
Light: Bright indirect light to medium light, but no direct sun.
Water: Stick your finger about an inch or two into the soil, if the soil feels dry--it’s time to water. If the soil feels wet, don’t water. Keep the soil moist, but not wet, as it is prone to rot.
Humidity: Requires moist air. Set pot on a tray of wet pebbles or use a room humidifier. Mist leaves frequently with room-temperature water.
Caution: Keep away from cold drafts.
