|The success of your plant depends on a variety of factors, most notably watering and light. Below are some species specific guidelines to follow that will help ensure that your plant will stay healthy and happy. |
Marantas do not require frequent pruning, just cut back browning or yellow leaves that occur naturally as the plant grows.
Fertilize every two weeks during Spring to Fall with a general houseplant fertilizer, and reduce to once a month or not at all during the Winter.
This plant enjoys bright, indirect indoor light. Too much sun may cause leaf burn.
|Temperature Requirements: |
Keep Marantas in a warm, indoor climate and mist daily to keep up humidity.
Keep soil moist, but not soggy. Use filtered water or rainwater; marantas may react negatively to the chemicals in tap water. Mist leaves to keep up humidity.
Repotting or transplanting your plant is a good way to ensure the soil maintains enough nutrients for the plant to thrive. We recommend repotting or transplanting as your plant begins to grow and outgrow its planter.
