Peacock plants are vibrant and air-purifying plants that close their leaves at night when they are asleep and open again as the sun rises. The unique pattern of the leaves makes them resemble peacock feathers.
We offer seven different peacock plants: Insignis, Sanderiana, Beautiful Star, Makoyana, Rufibarba, Orbifolia and Freddy.
Watering: Peacock plants should be watered at regular intervals when the top 1-2 cm soil starts to dry. Typically, this will be once or twice every two weeks. They tolerate you forgetting to water it occasionally, but long periods of dried-out soil will result in the tips and edges of the leaves turning brown.
Location: Your peacock plant prefers a bright location, though not in direct sun, as it will cause its leaves sun damage. Ideally place the peacock plants in front of a north-, east- or west-facing window. However, it doesn't like the cold nor the draught, so it's a bad idea to put it next to a window that is often left open.
Temperature: The plant thrives at room temperatures between 15-25 °C.
