Maranta Leuconeura 'Lemon Lime' is a stunning cultivar from the prayer plant family. Maranta are spectacularly variegated ornamental houseplants. Sometimes called Lemon Lime Herringbone Plant, the oval-shaped leaves of Lemon Lime Maranta are characterised by its velvety dark green leaves, intricate yellow-green variegation and striking pale yellow veins that form a distinctive herringbone pattern.

Not only is it strikingly patterned, but it also possesses a top talent - photonastic movement. 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. These plants have a low-spreading nature and will start to trail as they grow and mature.

Horty Hints

Sun-worshipper! If you have noticed your plant has stopped praying, don’t panic. The plant doesn’t need to move to be healthy, just watch out for scorching.

Location, Location, Location! Too little sun will cause the vivid colours on this plant to fade, too much and it will bleach and burn. A north or east-facing window for the win.

Pray goodbye to the dry! If there is slight leaf curl, but lots of browning, the leaves aren't getting enough water. If the soil is already wet, inspect the roots for rot.

Please note: images show how this plant may look at various stages of maturity. The size you choose may look different.
