Maranta leuconeura 'Marisela'
Maranta leuconeura 'Marisela' has striking oval leaves, dark green with a herringbone-like pattern of light yellow veining. Like most members of the Marantaceae family, the plant has a unique habit of folding its leaves upwards at night, which is why it's also known as the Marisela Prayer Plant. The plant has a trailing habit, and will eventually cascade over the sides of its pot, growing to about 12-18". As it matures, tiny lavender flowers appear on slender flower stalks, typically in summer.
The Marisela Prayer Plant is low maintenance and great for beginners. Place in medium to bright indirect light and water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry. Mist regularly.
- 4" pot: Each plant has multiple clumps, overall size 4-6"
- 6" pot: Each plant has multiple clumps, overall size 6-10"
Ships in a plastic nursery pot. Leaves measure about 3-4" long and 2-3" wide. Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur.

My first maranta and I was nervous about care. I left on table near south facing window for a few days to acclimate from travel, but noticed it was wilting and starting to look a bit unhappy. Decided to move into our master shower and so much happier with humidity. I would like to pull it out of there once in awhile because it is too beautiful to keep hidden from public view. Thank you for sending a healthy and well taken care of plant. Makes a huge difference with these sensitive ones!
I absolutely love my Maranta! He came healthy and happy, and has already put out two new leaves in the month that I've had him. Pistils is the only place I'm ordering plants from from now on.
