Calathea Plant Wilting

What can I do if my calathea  plant is drooping due to excess water in the compost? How do I get it back to its original position?

The quickest way to get the compost drier is to replace some of the soil on the outside of the rootball with dry soil. If the soil has dried out already and the plant is still looking droopy, there is a good chance that the plant may have developed root rot while it was too wet. This article will help with that: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/disease/treating-root-rot-gardening-tips-for-housplants.htm

Once the overwatering or root rot problem has been solved, it should perk back up.

That could be also. Peacock plant is of the genus Calathea, which is very similar to Maranta.

This looks like it might be a specie of Maranta, many of which are commonly grown as foliage houseplants. These are often called 'prayer plants', but the specie is known for the production of arrowroot. If your friend's plant is more of a tree than a small potted plant, it could be one used for agriculture rather than ornamental purposes. If you get in touch with a nearby botanical garden, they should be able to identify for you.

We do not sell from our web site.

Visit your local garden centers and greenhouse. This is a fairly common houseplant that will likely be found locally for purchase.
You can also do a Google search for suppliers.
