Enliven your living space with the striking beauty of the Black Maranta! This gorgeous rarer prayer plant stands out among its peers with dark, dramatic splashes that bear resemblance to a night sky, each leaf featuring its own unique pattern. Every day will bring something new as this stunning plant changes its shape throughout the day – fold up in prayer at night, then bursting open in the morning to greet you. And as an added bonus, this hardy houseplant will even recover from occasional under-watering or over-exposure to direct sunlight. So, whether you choose to liven up your office for guests or add a splash of eye-catching beauty to your home, there’s no wrong way to enjoy the striking look of the Black Maranta.

Position Keep in a bright well-lit area or provide additional light. Avoid heaters and draughty positions.
Temperature Temperatures above 20c will speed up growth, between 10 and 20c growth will be slow and plants can be pruned to keep compact. This Maranta is hardy but will not survive outdoors in cold climates.
Water Water well if kept in pots but sparingly in terrariums, potting mix should be allowed to almost dry between waterings. Keep on the dry side in winter.
Fertiliser Weak dose regularly in warmer months. Only fertilise if you would like the plant to grow. Less fertiliser will keep plants shorter and more compact.
Repotting Only when plant is well advanced in pot or mid-spring.

Congrats to the Plant Boys the certainly know there stuff
