This plant is perfect as an indoor plant loving bright indirect light and warmth. Named the "Peacock Plant" for its show stopping foliage. The leaves are a glossy light green, lanceolate shaped with thick dark green hand-painted dots and stripes. The undersides of the leaves are a rich, dark purple and the plant knows how to show off both sides of its beauty - a member of the Marantaceae family, or the "Prayer Plant" family - the leaves open in the day to the sun and close up at night, a slow but beautiful daily dance that the leaves perform every day.

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
