6" Maranta, Leuconeura Kerchoviana


We have run out of stock for this item.

Kerchoviana is one of the mainstay houseplants available since at least the 70s when everyone wanted to have a " prayer plant," so called because the leaves fold up at night and pray for you, a trait it shares with its cousins, the Calatheas. It is also called "rabbit tracks" for the cute, paired, darker colored spots marking the soft, oval, sage green foliage, as if a bunny just hopped over the length of the leaves. Easy going and not fussy about lighting needs, this guy can go anywhere in the house. You will be rewarded from time to time with little white flowers that float above the plant on short stems like a cloud of tiny white moths.
  • Also known as Prayer Plant
  • Pet Friendly

Quick Care Guide:

  • Water - Med/High (4):  Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
  • Light - Medium (3):  Plant prefers natural, diffused light. Can be placed in a spacious living room. Indirect light preferred. No direct sunlight on leaves.
  • Difficulty - Medium (3):  Not too difficult to keep happy, but does require some attention.
