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!

I placed my first order with Pistils a few weeks ago. I can’t express just how happy I am with the entire process from start to finish. I live all the way across the country in North Carolina but my plants arrived happy, healthy and beautiful! I have a soft spot for maranta’s and the one I received was just gorgeous! It is a beautiful addition to my growing (pun intended :) family. Thanks so much Pistil staff! I’ll be back again soon!
The maranta came in perfect condition, was super healthy and full. The weather suddenly dipped below freezing while shipping but it only lost one leaf after transit. Will look forward to my next purchase at Pistils!
This Marisela came exactly as shown in the picture, no brown spots or dead leaves. Reasonably priced and arrived quickly after being shipped
