Availability: In stock
+ -
The Maranta is probably our most popular plant in the shop but this one is the next level. This is a variegated Maranta meaning it has a genetic mutation that causes a lack of chlorophyll in parts of the leaves. This shows as beauitful white splashes. They are very rare so it's a real treat to have them in stock!
Although it may not seem like it, Maranta's will spread then trail down as they grow. They are often mistaken for Calatheas. Although they are not the same genus as Calathea's, they are both in the Marantaceae family so share a lot of similarities. Maranta's get their common name Prayer Plant by the way their leaves move to point upwards at night time like praying hands. All Maranta's are non toxic to cats and dogs.
