About the plant:
Arrowroot or im aranta comes from the tropical regions of South and Central America and is a slow-growing, low, bushy plant with thin stems and relatively wide and large leaves. In the rainforest, it forms a dense undergrowth, most often in the shade of tall trees. Maranta together with the genera Calathea, Ctenanthe and Stromanthe form a very similar group of so- called prayer plants . They are called so because they always begin to straighten their leaves towards evening, which can resemble hands folded in prayer. In the morning, they delight and open their leaves again.

Maranta leuconeura Kerchoveana variegata is characterized by its green oval leaves with brown spots and yellow-white variegation. In summer, white flowers may appear on the stems or near the leaves of the plant.

svetlo Light

The plant needs a lot of light to grow healthy and color its leaves. Give the plant plenty of bright light without sunlight that could burn the leaves. The ideal location is the north and east side.

zalivka Watering

Water with lukewarm water. The substrate should never dry out completely, but we pay attention to overflowing.

vzduch Humidity

The plant requires increased air humidity, so we often mist its leaves or place the flowerpot on a bowl of water and pebbles.

mnozeni Propagation

We can propagate the plant by dividing the bunches, for example during transplanting, when we separate a young and mature plant from the mother plant.

problemy Common problems

  • Overwatering: Too much water can cause root rot, yellowing and leaf drop.
  • Dry air: Due to insufficient air humidity, the leaves of the plant can start to dry from the tips and turn yellow or curl.
  • Burn: Direct light can burn the leaves of the plant, causing dark and dry spots. In a bright location, the leaves can also gradually start to turn pale.
