This rarely found Maranta 'Lemon Lime' is prized for its unusual green and lemon-lime, oval-shaped foliage, with classic herringbone patterned leaves.

Also called the Prayer Plant, the leaves part during the day and fold up like praying hands at night. Small, delicate flowers on long stems may appear in the summer. 

Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Water frequently in the growing season and when the top of the soil is getting dry to touch. Feed fortnightly during the Spring and Summer. Mist to increase humidity.

Height: 30cm
Fits Decorative Pot Size: 14cm+

Care Instructions

Light

Prefers indirect bright light and will tolerate direct sunlight in the morning or evening. If positioned in a shadier spot the plant will offer less growth and require less water.

Water

Thoroughly water, then allow the top few centimeters of compost to dry before re-watering. Water less in winter when the plant is growing more slowly. Over-watering can cause root rot.

Food

Feed every second time you water through spring and summer with a quality liquid plant food. There is no need to feed this plant in winter.

Humidity

This plant enjoys humidity. Place in a bathroom and/or mist regularly with water. Remove dust from the leaves with a damp cloth to improve photosynthesis.
