Maranta - Red Prayer


ith emerald green leaves, which slowly fade to a lighter shade towards their edges, and striking pink veins, this Maranta looks almost as if has been intricately painted. As such, this plant is guaranteed to capture the admiration of your loved ones, so why not place it on a mantlepiece or coffee table as a botanical focal point? Come nighttime, this Maranta's leaves will fold up, earning the name 'Prayer Plant', and sometimes you can even hear the leaves rustling! Aside from its beautiful foliage, this plant is easy to care for; simply keep it well-watered and mist regularly to enjoy a thriving display.

Partial Sun: Plants that like this type of light are mostly the type of plants that grow on the forest floor, where they are somewhat protected against direct sunlight during some hours of the day. This is also a very normal light situation for many windows, usually with a west- or east- facing window with around 4 hours of direct light each day. This could also be a spot further away from a very sunny window.
