GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Named for Bartolomeo Maranta, an Italian physician and botanist of the sixteenth century, the Maranta genus includes a few dozen low-growing plants native to the American tropics.
  • The plant gets its common name from the fact that its leaves stay flat during the day and then fold up like praying hands at night.
  • The Maranta leuconeura species has some of the most strikingly beautiful, decorative leaves in the plant kingdom.
  • The popular tricolor variety has deep green, velvety leaves with yellow splotches down the midrib and arching red veins traveling to the leaf margins.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Rich, well-draining.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Dilute a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer (10-10-10) to half strength.
  • Too much fertilizer can burn the roots—leaves will start to brown and you can even kill the plant.

WATER REQUIREMENT
