This Maranta is popularly known as Prayer Plant due to the fact that its leaves stay in an upright position during the day and then fold up like praying hands at night.
The Kerchoveana variety has light green leaves somewhat rounded with inconspicuous veining. There are dark splotches on either side of the main rib. When the leaves are juvenile, these splotches appear dark brown. Sometimes, they can also appear to be deep green. This deep color fades as the leaf matures.
As a tropical plant, Marantas thrive best when provided with conditions similar to their native rainforests. It prefers medium to bright indirect light, moist soil at all times and frequent misting to increase humidity.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
