Maranta leuconeura (Red Prayer Plant) is a hardy yet delicate "Prayer Plant" with beautiful foliage. The new leaves emerge olive green with red veins. This plant has a horizontal growth, so yes, it trails! Plants in the Maranta genus are referred to as "Prayer Plants" because of their movement. As the day comes to an end, the leaves will fold upwards as if praying.

 

Plant Care

Maranta leuconeura (Red Prayer Plant) grows well in medium or filtered bright light. Avoid direct sun because it will damage the leaves, and too much bright light can affect the leaves' colors. Although it does not like soggy soil, you shouldn't wait until the soil dries out entirely to water. Make sure to keep the soil moist, but do not overwater. Use filtered water or water left out overnight before watering as this plant is sensitive to hard tap water. 


Maranta leuconeura (Red Prayer Plant) needs medium to high humidity to grow healthy and larger, but average room humidity is fine. If your household air is too dry, place the plant on a humidifying tray or use a humidifier to increase humidity. If the plant can get medium or filtered bright light, you can place the plant in a bathroom since the steam from the shower will increase humidity.
