The Maranta leuconeura is a flowering evergreen, native to Central and South America (primarily Brazil) and are commonly called the Prayer Plant. They are grown for their attractive foliage. The Prayer Plant have oval-shaped, strikingly-marked leaves with a distinctive pattern on the top side of the leaf. The leaves have a habit of lying flat during the day, and folding in an erect position at night as if in prayer hence the common name 'prayer plant'. They make fantastic underbedding plants because of their low growing habit. Position in a partial to shaded position in your garden. If you have it indoors ensure there is good filtered light. They do best in well-draining soil. Watering when the top layer so soil starts to dry. Remember to adjust the watering for the different seasons.
The Maranta is closely related to the Calathea Varieties which we grow as part of the Easy Care Range and Decorative Indoor Range
