Furry feathers, as fun as they sound, are temperamental houseplants with a knack for dying if their exacting needs aren't met.
The Furry feather is a species of tropical houseplant native to Brazil named for the shape of its leaves and the tiny hairs underneath them. This striking houseplant goes by various names, such as the Peacock or Zebra plant.
To identify this stunning Peacock plant, look no further than its distinct deep green leaves with a purple underside supported by a maroon stalk. Not the tallest houseplant, mature Peacock plants can reach heights of up to 3.5ft(1m).
The Furry Feather isn't the easiest plant to care for if lighting, humidity, soil, and watering conditions aren't met; these picky perennials can perish quickly.
