Maranta Lemon Lime


Lemon Lime Maranta is also known as a Prayer Plant. It is a very attractive and popular indoor houseplant. It has oval shaped green leaves, with lime variegation down the center and lime veins that form a herringbone pattern. The backs of the leaves are dark green. The plant gets its name from the way the leaves fold closed at night, resembling praying hands. This plant is great in a hanging basket, as it tends to spread low and wide.

**Marantas are non-toxic and pet friendly!

Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves of the prayer plant and can quickly kill the plant. It prefers bright but indirect sunlight during the day and is generally tolerant of lower light areas, as long as there is good air flow.

Marantas like consistently warm temperatures around the 75 degree range.

To grow prayer plant best, realize they do not like to be dry. Keep the soil evenly moist all the times, but never let the roots get soggy. In the winter months, reduce watering.

A general-purpose houseplant potting soil can be used, so long as it is well-draining.
