Learn More About Prayer Plant Lemon Lime

Collapsible content

What is the Prayer Plant Lemon Lime Known For?

The Prayer Plant Lemon Lime, officially known as Maranta Leuconeura 'Marisela,' captivates with its striking lime-green leaves adorned with darker green markings. Its leaves fold upwards during the evening, resembling a posture of prayer, which is how it got its common name. This unique feature, along with its vivid foliage, adds an interactive and colourful touch to any indoor space.

What Is the History of the Prayer Plant Lemon Lime?

The Prayer Plant family, Maranta, is native to tropical regions of Brazil and was named after Bartolomeo Maranta, a 16th-century Italian botanist. The Lemon Lime variant is a cultivar that was developed to produce brighter, more striking foliage. It has gained significant attention in recent years for its vivid leaves and unique nyctinastic movements (leaf folding).

Where Does the Prayer Plant Lemon Lime Originate?

The original Maranta species, from which the Prayer Plant Lemon Lime cultivar was developed, is indigenous to the Brazilian rainforest. The tropical conditions there provide a clue to the plant's preferred environment: warm, humid, and shielded from direct sunlight.

How Do You Care for a Prayer Plant Lemon Lime?

The Prayer Plant Lemon Lime thrives in moderate to bright, indirect light, and appreciates high humidity. To achieve optimal growth, water the plant when the soil surface starts to dry, using room-temperature water. Overwatering should be avoided, as it can lead to root rot. For nutrition, use a balanced liquid fertiliser every four to six weeks during the growing season.

Are Prayer Plant Lemon Lime Toxic to Pets?

While the Prayer Plant Lemon Lime is non-toxic to pets, it's always wise to exercise caution. Some pets may experience mild stomach upset if they chew on the leaves. As a best practice, it's advisable to keep houseplants out of reach of pets that are prone to nibbling on foliage.

    Unfortunately my plant was a little damaged when it came and the soil had spilt, however the person delivering left it outside the next day when I wasn't in during the first time they tried so I was grateful for that and the instructions were helpful

    Excellent Experience

    Excellent all round. Website is very informative, and easy to use, I especially like that it advises you which plants are pet friendly, and gives a comprehensive guide on care for the plant. I was kept informed of the delivery process and times, plants arrived on time which was great because they were given as a gift. Fantastic company to deal with and I would highly recommend them, I will definitely be using them again in the future.

    Packing is always very good, plants are always the finest quality, The only way you could improve the service, is to provide a descriptive Label with the plants, I always label my plants on arrival, it would be so better to have a nicely printed one.

    Ordered 3 plants here. Previous experiences have been excellent. 2 of the 3 ordered were in less than desirable condition. On one of them, all but one of the stems had broken off. It has since died. On another the plant took up absolutely no space in the pot at all. It’s as if they were out of stock of the size I requested so they put a baby one in a larger pot with extra soil. Such a shame.

    Thought I was ordering some great...

    Thought I was ordering some great deals, with decent discounts off regular prices. Plants arrived quickly, exceedingly well packaged - unfortunately, a little too tightly wrapped, as some of the foliage on plants was squashed and simply fell off when out of the packaging. Additionally, those bargains I thought I'd found turned out to be not so great - plants were all very healthy-looking, but all of them deviated greatly from the stated size ranges on the website (a tradescantia advertised as 10-20cm in size measured no more than 8cm at its single tallest point). Given how much I paid versus what I received, I think it'll probably be better to just buy from a local seller in future, as I'll at least be able to see exactly what I'm getting.
