This maranta fascinator plant has seriously striking red veined leaves. Maranta are related to calathea plants, and are also commonly called prayer plants. In the day time the leaves splay out, and at night time they fold upwards. 

This plant suits many of our pots - scroll down to see which ones fit perfectly. 

Light: They grow best in bright (but not direct) light, but will also do fine in a bit of shade. 

Water: They do prefer lukewarm water, and can sometimes get spots on the leaves in protest of the minerals found in tap water. Tap is fine, but if you can, mineral or rain water is preferred. Let the top 1-2cm of soil dry out in between watering. 

Humidity: They really like humidity. If you see any brown tips on the leaves, it usually means they need a bit more of it. Let it live in a bright bathroom for a while, mist it or stand it on a pebble tray to raise humidity. 

Height and growth rate: They get to around 30cm tall but can be quite bushy. They work well in hanging baskets too. 

Feed: They like a weak dose of liquid fertiliser every 3 weeks or so in the spring and summer months. 

Toxicity: Non-toxic.

Origin: Brazil. 

*Our plants and pots are sold separately. Your plant will arrive in its plastic nursery pot, unless you have also ordered a decorative pot.
