In its native environment, the Lemon and Lime Maranta experiences dappled sunlight, as the towering trees in the rainforest create a canopy that filters and diffuses the light.

Understanding the plant's wild habitat offers valuable insights into its preferences and behaviours. While the Lemon and Lime Maranta has adapted well to indoor cultivation, providing conditions reminiscent of its natural environment will ensure its optimal growth and vibrant display. Mimicking the filtered sunlight, maintaining warmth, and attending to its humidity and moisture needs will result in a thriving and visually stunning houseplant.
Why "Lemon and Lime"? The playful nickname "Lemon and Lime" stems from the vivid green hues that dominate Marisela's leaves, creating a refreshing and vibrant colour palette reminiscent of citrus fruits. This delightful moniker adds a touch of whimsy to the plant's already enchanting persona.
