Calathea Makoyana Peacock Plant - Starter Plant/4" Grower Pot

Meet "Misty," a spectacular house plant with large oval papery leaves featuring dark green blotches in the front and a reddish pink back. She is very expressive; she wants to curl right up when thirsty.  This neotropical plant curls up in "prayer" at night and awakens wide open, ready to greet the sun!  We call her Misty because she loves some moisture in a bottle!  She is also a mover and a shaker, so don't be surprised if you catch her moving towards the sun but never direct sun!  Most importantly, she is pure of heart and a great addition to any room yearning for pure air!
