Red Maranta

$21.00

Red Prayer Plant is a very attractive and popular indoor houseplant. It has oval shaped green leaves, with lime variegation down the center and red veins that form a herringbone pattern. The backs of the leaves are burgundy. The plant gets its name from the way the leaves fold closed at nighttime to retain moisture. 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.

To grow prayer plant best, realize they do not like to be dry. Keep the soil evenly moist all the time, but never let the roots get soggy. When watering, use water that is at least at room temperature if not slightly warm. In the winter months, reduce watering.

A general purpose houseplant potting soil can be used, so long as it is well-draining. To improve drainage, add rocks or gravel to the bottom of your pot and be sure that it has a drainage hole.
