Plant Description

The Peacock plant has been given its delightful name because it has beautiful bold and decorative marking of a peacock’s tail. The leaves are pale green with dark green feathered effect with a pinkish-red underside. This slender plant with the right care can reach a height of 60cm. Peacock plants are perfect to layer with next to a floor length plant or alone on a table top creating a dramatic effect in your interior.

Native to tropics of eastern Brazil, the Peacock Plant requires the right level of moisture, light and humidity to flourish. The Peacock Plant can be a little harder to care for as it needs evenly moist soil all the time. As the plant prefers medium to low indirect light, you can place this plant further away from the windowsill then others.

The small Peacock plant is part of our Live Gift Range and comes with a matching ceramic pot.
