Care Instructions:

Light:

  • Prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate lower light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the delicate leaves.

Water:

  • Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil is dry. The Maranta 'Lemon Lime' is sensitive to drought, so ensure it is watered regularly.

Humidity:

  • Thrives in high-humidity environments. Regular misting or using a humidity tray can help maintain the necessary moisture levels, especially in dry indoor conditions.

Temperature:

  • Prefers temperatures between 60°F and 80°F (16°C - 27°C). Protect from cold drafts and temperatures below 55°F (13°C).

Soil:

  • Use a well-draining, rich organic potting mix. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and compost works well to support healthy growth.

Fertilizer:

  • Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce feeding in the fall and winter.

Pruning:

  • Remove any dead or damaged leaves to maintain appearance and encourage new growth. Regular pruning helps prevent disease and promotes a tidy, healthy plant.

  • Statement Plant: Place Maranta 'Lemon Lime' in a prominent spot where its vibrant, patterned leaves can be admired. Its colorful foliage makes it a stunning statement piece in any room.
  • Desk or Shelf Plant: Position Maranta 'Lemon Lime' on a desk, shelf, or windowsill where its bright leaves can add a touch of tropical charm and color to elevated spaces.
  • Grouping with Other Plants: Combine with other shade-loving plants like calatheas, ferns, and philodendrons to create a diverse and visually appealing indoor garden.
  • Bathroom Plant: Its love for humidity makes it an excellent choice for bathrooms. Place it on a shelf or windowsill where it can thrive in the moist environment.
  • Modern Decor: The vibrant, patterned foliage of Maranta 'Lemon Lime' fits well with modern, minimalist decor. Use a simple, contemporary pot to complement its striking appearance.
