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 saw pictures of Marantas online and wanted one so badly. I was a little worried about online ordering and not being able to see the plant before buying, but she arrived in a very short time and was quite spectacular! Very neatly packaged and has settled in happily. Definitely a first purchase of many more to come!
Since moving in with me, she has unfurled 2 leaves and 2 more are nearly there. Very healthy and happy plant, Pistils is the best!
