The Maranta Red, also know commonly as the Prayer Plant is a great addition to any home. This fun plant can be found responding to the sun and curling its leaves up at night.
PROPAGATION When you receive your cutting, remove it from the packaging immediately.
Un-rooted cuttings should be placed in a glass or jar of water as soon as possible. Make sure that nodes (the spot where the leaf meets the stem and aerial roots form) are below the level of the water, and place in bright, indirect light. Change and refresh water 2-3 times per week.
Allow roots to become several inches long and well established before transferring to well drained potting soil. This may take anywhere from several weeks to several months depending on season, conditions, and what type of plant you are propagating.
Rooted cuttings may be planted into soil immediately, or may live happily in water for several weeks.
