Care

Light

This plant prefers moderate indirect light. As it is native to the tropical rainforest floor, its leaves will burn in bright direct sunlight. If light is too low, it will slow the growth of the plant and increase the chance of overwatering as the plant consumes less water.

Water

The soil for this plant should be kept consistently moist, but it will not tolerate standing water. It is important that the pot and soil are both well draining. If the leaves begin to wilt and turn crispy and brown at the edges, it means the soil is too dry, and watering should be increased. If a Maranta is overwatered, the leaves will yellow and root rot will occur.

Care

The Maranta plant is native to the tropical rainforest floor of Brazil. It requires high humidity levels, and cannot tolerate bright, direct sunlight. Brown, crispy leaf edges are a sign of low humidity or too much light. Marantas should be fertilized monthly through the spring and summer, with diluted general houseplant fertilizer.
