Maranta Leuconeura, also known as prayer plant, is a species of flowering plant in the family Marantaceae, native to the Brazilian tropical forests. It is a variable, rhizomatous perennial, growing to 30 cm (12 in) tall and broad, with crowded clumps of evergreen, strikingly-marked oval leaves, each up to 12 cm (5 in) long.

Maranta Leuconeura is a well-known houseplant in temperate regions, requiring a minimum temperature of 15 °C (59 °F). As a plant that is native to rainforests, Maranta prefers bright indirect sunlight, high humidity, and well-drained soil that has a high humus content. Acidic, clay or loam soils are tolerable. Direct sunlight should be avoided, as well as standing water. At daytime the ideal temperature is 21–27°C and at night 16–21°C; the night temperature should not be lower than 15°C. Higher temperatures also require higher humidity, for example, just spraying.*
