The fabulous 'Red Maranta' or 'Herringbone Plant' is one of the more stunning 'Prayer Plant' species. The prominent red veins highlight leaves that have light through dark green colors, with some sections that are almost black. The undersides of the leaves are a deep purple.
As with other prayer plants, this species will point it's leaves upwards at night in response to the change in light conditions, in contrast to it's tendency to hang during the day. As these plants grow they tend to hang over the edge of the pot, making them great hanging plants.
Pet (and human) friendly !
