Maranta Q&A

Why are my leaves yellowing?
This is generally a sign of overwatering. Maranta plants like to be watered on a regular basis but do not like to sit in wet soil. Make sure you allow the top soil to dry out in between waterings.

Why do my leaves have brown tips?
This is likely because your plant is getting too much direct light. Maranta plants prefer bright but indirect sunlight.
Why are my leaves folding at night?
This is perfectly normal for a prayer plant. Their leaves fold up at night resembling praying hands, hence the name! Since maranta plants are typically found in rainforests, they have open leaves during the day to soak up sunlight and close their leaves at night to protect their leaves from too much water.
