Watering

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch, typically once or twice a week. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot.

Feeding

Feed your Maranta with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce or stop fertilizing during fall and winter when the plant's growth slows down.

Humidity

Marantas prefer high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves regularly, using a humidifier, or placing the plant on a tray filled with pebbles and water. Grouping plants together can also help create a microclimate of higher humidity.
