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

Plant arrived on time and was packaged for safe travel. I followed the directions for care and so far the plant is doing great. Will wait the recommended 14 days before I repot
I love her so much!
This came as part of a two plant order. Unfortunately, UPS had it in transit for about a week. However, both plants still came in fantastic condition. The photos don't do justice how stunning this plant is in person.
I ordered 3 of these and all are full, healthy plants that arrived in an expertly packed box
