Maranta Tricolour Care Guide

Light Requirements:

These plants do well in bright environments. Avoid any sunlight as this will burn their very tender leaves. 

Watering needs:

Maranta’s do enjoy being kept evenly moist – but not so much were they are standing in water for long periods of time.  You can allow just the top to dry out a little. Regarding water – try and let the water stand over night so that the chlorine dissapates – otherwise filtered or borehole water is just perfect! 

Humidity requirements:

High humity is always best for these tropical plants

Fertilizing:

Try and fertlize Maranta’s at least every two to three weeks in spring and summer and hold back in the winter which is usually their dormant period. An general water soluable fertilizer would do great. 

Soil:

At least every year, you will need to to upsize the pot and give him a fresh mix. They require a well draining soil mixture that has medium moisture retention. 

Staghorn and Pitcher have an excellent, already prepared potting mix which is perfect for this plant. 

Alternatively if you’re brave enough to mix your own, only use a premium potting mix such as the Gromor Potting Soil and it’s always good practice to add in perlite that will assist with good drainage, then coco peat moss, or coir husks that will hold in moisture.
