Maranta leuconeura 'Fascinator' or 'Exclusive Dark' is a popular houseplant known for its stunning leaves with deep green and purple coloring. It's also called the Prayer Plant because its leaves fold up at night like hands in prayer. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Maranta Exclusive Dark prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but its growth and color will be less vibrant.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Maranta Exclusive Dark likes moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-80°F (15-27°C).

  5. Soil: Maranta Exclusive Dark prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any yellowing or damaged leaves.

  8. Propagation: Maranta Exclusive Dark can be propagated by stem cuttings or division. Take a stem cutting with a few leaves, and plant it in a pot with moist potting mix. Cover the pot with a plastic bag to create a mini greenhouse, and place it in bright, indirect light. Alternatively, you can divide the plant by gently separating the roots and replanting in a new pot.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Maranta Exclusive Dark is relatively pest-free, but watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children, as it's toxic when ingested. Maranta Exclusive Dark is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of elegance to any room with its stunning leaves and unique growth habit.
