An occasional spray of mist is my beauty secret to looking fabulous!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


Everything in moderation is my motto, so I like to be watered little but often, keeping my soil moist.

If you notice your Prayer Plant's colourful leaves fading, move it to a shadier spot and the vibrancy will come back in no time!

About Lil' Makoyana Prayer Plant

The Lil' Makoyana Prayer Plant is nicknamed the Peacock Plant thanks to its stunning patterned foliage. Its leaves resemble the eye-catching feathers in a peacock's tail. Add a touch of elegance to your home with the regal Lil' Makoyana. Unlike a real peacock, your Lil' Peacock Plant doesn't need to live in acres of sprawling gardens - it's happiest indoors with a small spot in bright, indirect sunlight in your bedroom, living room, hallway, or office.

The Calathea Makoyana likes to picture itself at a garden party strolling around the manor grounds while people play croquet and drink iced tea, so keep it in temperatures of 18-23°C (but it can handle as low as 15°C - it is England after all, warm weather isn't guaranteed). To keep it refreshed, regularly give it tap water for its afternoon tea (scones and cucumber sandwiches optional). Curling leaves can mean it needs a smidge more water - be a dear, will you?

While your Lil' Makoyana Prayer Plant loves strutting its stuff, it isn't threatened by others - it's confident it's the most beautiful thing in your home. So you don't need to worry about little Pricklettes being around it as it is a non-toxic and pet-friendly houseplant.
