The maranta is a close relative to the calathea and with its boldly patterned foliage and tendency to fold its leaves every night, it's easy to see why! This lemon lime variety has a uniquely striped pattern on its leaves, with a mix of green, chartreuse, and yellow colors. It is nicknamed the prayer plant because of that habit of folding its leaves and has a tendency toward trailing. Watch for tiny light purple flowers on thin stalks in the summer time.
