Maranta Leuconeura ‘Lemon Lime’, is a rare and highly sought after variety of the tropical species more commonly known as The Prayer Plant!
Pot size: 14 cm (diameter)
Plant size: 25-30 cm (without the pot)
Leuconeura means “white-veined”, although the veins on the leaves are more of a bright green lime color, hence the name ‘Lemon Lime’.
It’s this particular coloration that makes the Maranta Leuconeura ‘Lemon Lime’ so popular with collectors, and therefore hard to find! Maranta Leuconeura ‘Lemon Lime’ is an easy going plant, that likes to grow from a wall planter or a hanging basket, and can easily be pruned and propagated should the growth get out of hand.
And despite being in the same family as Calathea’s, this plant doesn’t require nearly as much humidity, and will even tolerate low light.
Prefers medium to bright, indirect light and is sensitive to direct sunlight
Prefer to be moist but not wet or saturated
Non-toxic to pets
