ABOUT OUR VARIEGATED MARANTA LEUCONEURA
Hey, I’m the variegated Maranta. I’m also known as the red maranta and I’m part of the prayer plant family but with a twist. I'm truly a one of a kind plant with speckled variegation patterns throughout my foliage. My care is exactly the same as my sister Margot who is the non-variegated version but I probably prefer a little more natural light. I'm not an easily found houseplant plant so snap me up while you still can!
You won’t find me in the Brazilian jungle like the other prayer plant species but I do prefer very similar care. I like warm temperatures, high humidity and filtered water. The prayer plant family is a very popular houseplant for British homes because we can all cope with less natural light and don’t need bright indirect light to survive. Keep my environment humid by placing me in a bathroom or nearby a humidifier. Find out how you can increase humidity here.
My stunning variegation gives me a one of a kind look. Take me home and have something truly unique.
Small Height (including nursery pot) 45cm; pot diameter 14cm.(Fits a 15-17cm Pot)
DID YOU KNOW?
You may notice the foliage of your variegated Maranta move throughout the day. They do this to follow the light and then will stand up tall at night when the sun has set.
The Variegated Maranta will need a spot in the centre of the home so she won't be missed by visiting guests.
QUICK MARANTA PLANT CARE
Like any prayer plant, the variegated Maranta needs high humidity, warm temperatures and plenty of natural light.
I prefer bright and indirect light. Place me a metre away from a south or west facing window.
Keep my soil consistently moist. I don’t like soggy or dry soil.
Dilute a fertiliser to half strength to avoid burning my foliage. Fertilise me once a month in the growing season.

THINGS WE ALWAYS GET ASKED
How do you care for a prayer plant?
The prayer plant needs high levels of humidity and consistent watering. Keep the soil on the moist side and only water if the first inch of soil has dried out. Never let the variegated Maranta sit in excess water. You may notice some crispy leaves which are often caused by lack of humidity or a bad reaction to tap water. Use filtered or rain water as the chemicals in tap water can upset its root system.
Where should I put my prayer plant?
The ideal spot for the prayer plant is a metre away from a south, west or east facing window which lets in plenty of natural light. Avoid leaving the plant in a place where it will receive direct sunlight. This will dry out the foliage and burn the leaves. You can place the variegated Maranta in any spot in the home within these conditions as she is not toxic if ingested so it’s safe to have around young pets and children.
How often should you water the prayer plant?
The variegated Maranta dislikes their soil to dry out. Check the soil once or twice a week and only water when the top inch of soil has completely dried out. Little and often amounts of water is recommended to avoid overly soggy soil which could lead to root rot.
PLANT STYLING TIPS
The variegated Maranta will look stunning as a center piece for a dining room table or a focal point for a coffee table in a sung or living room. Pair her with Ollie who will visually work very well alongside her. You can also match her with a plant that releases humidity in the air like Lily the peace lily and Hamish the fern.
