Plant Bio

When it comes to showmanship, you can't go wrong with peacock plants. Watermelon colors of dark red on the bottom and variegated green and yellow on the top make their foliage stand out. Officially called calathea roseopicta, these Brazilian beauties have earned the nickname prayer plants. This is because they raise and lower their leaves throughout the day, as if they're worshipping. A medium-care plant, it thrives in humid environments.

Roots

Grown in the USA. Native to South America.
