Care Information

  • Site

    Light to dark shade in summer. Brighter in winter but keep out of direct sun, this will dull the colour of the leaves, and could be fatal!

  • Temperature

    Keep warm minimum of 16°C / 60°F.

  • Water

    Keep well watered in summer, Maranta loves high humidity mist when you can and keep the compost moist in the summer. Brown tips show that the humidity is too low.

  • Feeding

    Feed with a very weak solution when you water. Don't give it a strong feed every now and then.

  • Tip

    Do not re-pot too often and use a peat based compost.
