Maranta leuconeura - Herringbone Plant

$ 12.00

This brightly patterned plant's complete latin name is Maranta leuconeura erythroneura. Otherwise known as the Herringbone Plant, its leaves are striped with bands of bright pink. 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 Red 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. 


‚Äʬ†Light: Medium to¬†bright, indirect light
‚Äʬ†Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
‚Äʬ†Considerations: Mist¬†periodically¬†or set on a pebble tray to create a humid environment. Pet friendly!


You'll¬†get a healthy¬†Maranta leuconeura that meets our rigorous quality standards in a your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot ‚ÄstCoco Planter¬†sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos (6" plant shown).

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

just in time!

my lemon maranta, and herringbone maranta, were part of a gift basket for my son he has always admired my plants when he visits. I decided to add some to his collection. I ordered from Pistils because I trusted they would arrive in good shape and decent size. They looked great on arrival and just in time! Thank you! I live at the Jersey shore, so that's quite a trip for any plant. Again thank you!

First time order & Super Happy!

This was my first time ordering from Pistils after looking at the site for months and hesitating. I live halfway across the country so I was very nervous about the condition the plants would arrive in (especially given USPS service in my area‚Ķ leaves something to be desired). Ordered a 6‚ÄĚ calathea and a 4‚ÄĚ maranta and they both arrived in great condition! The box was a little rough on one side but the plants were very well packaged with wooden rods to help keep them from breaking and damp paper towels in the soil to keep it moist. Mine were in transit for about 3 days but arrived with the soil still a little moist (I still watered them though). Very happy with this purchase as I‚Äôd been looking for these plants for a while and no store or nursery near me seemed to have just what I wanted.
