Maranta

Maranta leuconeura

£19.00

As if the appearance of the Maranta wasn't magical enough, this plant also has leaves that move on a daily basis. It's also known as the Prayer Plant because the leaves rise up as if in prayer at night, and reach down during the day.

Marantas need bright light, but dislike direct sunlight. The brighter the light, the brighter the colours in their leaves will become. It is a low, creeping plant which will grow horizontally across a surface.
