All green version of Maranta leuconeura. Tri-shade green stipes stemming from the center with arcuate veins. 

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.  The 'Lemon Lime' form lacks red stripes and has green undersides (as opposed to maroon when compared to species).
