More often seen in the Prayer Plant series, the Maranta Leuconeura Kerchoveana is a spectacular plant to have at home.
Plant Care - Maranta Leuconeura Kerchoveana
Light: Place your Maranta Leuconeura Kerchoveana under bright, indirect sunlight and do avoid direct sunlight as it will cause its leave to scorch and dry up. High temperature can also cause its leaves to turn brown, thus we advise placing your Maranta somewhere with good ventilation and airflow.
Water: Allow the top surface of the soil to dry up between watering the plant. We recommend watering it once a week. The Maranta enjoys higher humidity levels, so when the weather gets hot, give it the occasional water mist it deserves.
Fertiliser: Feed your plant with a houseplant Fertiliser at half strength once every two weeks during its growing season.
Humidity Requirement: Medium to High
Fun Facts about the Maranta genus: Did you know? Just like the Calatheas, the Marantas are also popularly known as the Prayer plants. They fold their leaves up during the night, resembling praying hands! And when the morning comes, they open up their leaves to start the day. In the wilderness, Maranta grows on the floor of rainforests where the environment is humid and not much direct sunlight shines through. In other words, when they are grown indoors, a similar setting is needed for them to thrive.
