Prayer Plant – Maranta (نبات الصلاة . مارانتا )

AED 15.00

Maranta are spectacularly variegated ornamental houseplants. Sometimes called Maranta leuconeura Fascinator Tricolour, the oval shaped leaves of the Herringbone Plant are incredibly unique.

The leaves are dark green in the centre melding to a lighter green at the margins and alternate light splotches down the centre line. The veins are an eye-catching red, running down the centre of the leaf and branching out in a herringbone pattern.

Often referred to as Prayer Plants, along with their closely related cousins Calathea, Maranta leaves have the unusual characteristic of lying flat during the day and then closing upwards at night as if in prayer.
