Maranta leuconeura var. kerchoveana is a hardy yet delicate "Prayer Plant" with very funky foliage. The new leaves emerge light green with burgundy patches that eventually turn dark green when the leaves mature. 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. The ones we currently have in stock are super bushy! Don't miss out on this beautiful plant.

 

Plant Care

Maranta leuconeura var. kerchoveana grows well in medium or filtered bright light (no direct sun because it will damage the leaves) and well-draining soil. 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. Maranta leuconeura var. kerchoveana needs medium to high humidity to grow healthy and larger. 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.
