    Care info

    Sun: The Red Maranta prefers medium and indirect light. Placement at the interior of bright rooms or near north and east-facing windows are ideal. They’re adaptable to lower light levels, however improper lighting will change the leaf appearance.

    Water: Keep soil consistently moist but not wet. Water when the top soil has dried 1-2 inches and use room temperature, non-tap water. Reduce frequency during fall and winter.

    Air: Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. Most indoor air will require extra humidity in order for the Red Maranta to thrive.

    Provide a regular boost of humidity by:
    • Adding a humidifier nearby
    • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
    • Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable
    • Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water

    Spiritual Interpretation

    Known as a symbol of gratitude, its daily act of “prayer” encourages us to set aside time for reflection in our own routine, encourages us to connect with others, and be present during life's moments.

    The Maranta is a thoughtful gift to remind our loved ones how impactful they are in our lives.

    What Health Benefits Does This Plant Provide?

    Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 

    • Lower stress levels

    •Improved mood

    • Superior mental clarity and focus

    Houseplants are excellent air purifiers. They cleanse the air of indoor toxins, produce oxygen, and their humidifying capabilities will help you sleep + breathe better. Keep their leaves free of dust for optimal photosynthesis and oxygen production.

    Plant Lifecycle

    Marantas are lifelong companions under proper care and conditions. Rather than growing upright, these grow in a "spreading" manner, often favoring one direction, which sometimes hangs over the planter.

    For optimal health and longevity, use well-draining soil that retains moisture and a planter with a drainage hole. Fertilize during the growing season.
