A more toned-down form of Maranta leuconeura. Oval shaped, light green leaves with dots of maroon running down the length of the leaves. Solid green back.

This plant is named the "Prayer Plant" due to their ability to fold up their leaves in the afternoon; even indoors without much natural light! Works great in hanging pots, flowers are insignificant but still a treat whenever it flowers.
