Houseplant care Guide: Maranta

Clare Haynes

 

Sometimes also known as prayer-plants, Maranta are popular amongst houseplant enthusiasts for their unique colours, patterns and texture. Common Varieties include Maranta Red Vein and Maranta Green.



To keep your Maranta happy simply follow these easy tips!



Light: Maranta like bright indirect light. Unsure what that means? Bright indirect light is in between full sun lighting and shade.



Water: Keep moist, however, take caution to not overwater or allow the soil to become soggy or waterlogged. It is also recommended that you water less in cooler months and water regularly during warm weather.


Nutrients: Feed regularly, following the instructions and dosage specified by the houseplant fertiliser. We recommend using Plant Runner plant food or We the Wild 'Grow' liquid plant food.


Other: Maranta may benefit from humidity and prefer warm weather. Ensure your Maranta is placed away from cold drafts. Brown edges on leaves may be a sign of too much direct light, cold temperatures or lack of water.



Difficulty: Medium
