MARANTA  FASCINATOR
 

The Maranta Fascinator is one of my all time favourites.  They look great in one of our plant hangers. They have a reputation for being tricky but I've always found them easy care.  They are part of the Prayer Plant family so called because their leaves move up and down from day to night.

WATER 
Water when the top 5cm to 10cm of soil is dry.  They do not like to dry out completely but can be  susceptible to root rot if the soil is left too soggy.
 

LIGHT  
Bright indirect are best for Maranta but they can tolerate some shade. Avoid getting direct light onto the leaves as this will burn them.
 

FERTILISING  
Feed once a month with diluted standard houseplant fertiliser during the Spring and Summer months.
 

SOIL
Maranta like a loose soil for their delicate roots, but one that also retains moisture.  Visit our soil bar for Vermiculite, Perlite and Coco Coir to add to a standrad houseplant mix.
 

TEMPERATURE  
As long as they are kept away from open winter windows and hot radiators normal household temperatures are fine for Marantas.

HUMIDITY  
Maranta's like higher humidity.  Group together with other plants or place on a pebble tray.
 

TOXICITY 
Maranta are considered non toxic to animals and humans.
