The Maranta Leuconeura Marisela is a beatiful variety of Prayer Plant that is hard to find in the UK. The leaves are a lighter shade of green, and the marking lighter green again - almost a green cream colour. This is a beautiful foliage plant that is happy in a planter or hanging and the plants we sell are large and healthy.
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 relatively low-maintenance.
Keep in a filtered bright to medium light but away from direct light.
Increase the humidity in the room with a humidifier, mist regularly or set a pan or dish filled with pebbles and water below the plant to increase the room’s humidity, brown tips will show the humidity is too low.
The soil should never be allowed to dry out completely. Not enough water and overwatering can cause the leaves to turn yellow and drop from the plant. If the leaves begin to turn yellow, water the plant less often if the soil is still wet or more often if the soil appears dry between
