Maranta are easily considered a favorite amongst plant enthusiasts, and the Lemon Lime is no exception! With its almost shockingly neon stripes laced into the dark green velvety leaves, this plant holds its own in any plant collection. At night, Maranta will fold up its leaves, resembling praying hands, and thus earning its nickname, the Prayer Plant.
Light: Provide your Maranta bright indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid placing your Maranta in direct sunlight as to avoid leaf scorching. Yellowing of the leaves can be an indication of inadequate lighting. If you notice significant discoloration, consider placing your light in brighter light.
Water: Maranta prefer to remain consistently moist, but never wet or soggy. One indicator that your Maranta is ready to be watered is curling of the leaves. We recommend adding a humidifier to your plant care routine to help add humidity to these tropical plants.
These are pet friendly plants.
