The Maranta Leuconeura Kercho is our new favourite plant, it's stunning with a wide variety of colours and variegation. A beautiful variety of Prayer Plant that is hard to find and will grow happily as a potted or hanging plant. Incredibly easy care and a real 'wow' plant.
Maranta plants are hardy and easy-care indoor plants. The leaves lie flat during the day and fold upward at night, as if in prayer. Prayer plants are low-maintenance. As a plant that is native to the Brazilian rainforests, Maranta prefers bright indirect sunlight, high humidity, and well-drained soil that has a high humus content
