The plant of the week this week is Maranta Lemon Lime. This plant is phototropic which means they move their leaves in response to light—opening and closing their leaves in the morning and night. Hence the name “Prayer Plant”.

The Maranta Lemon Lime also blooms. It produces tiny, light pink/white flowers.

They like to be in bright filtered light, but not be in direct sunlight as this will burn the leaves. It is essential to keep the plant from getting too dry between waterings. Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry.

Non toxic to pets and people too!
