Rabbit food? Yes. That's the common name given to this Brazilian-based plant from the rainforest. Flattering? We'll let you decide. The darker patches on the plant's leaves recall the ones on a rabbit's paw.
This plant is part of the Prayer Plants family and has the particularity to close its leaves upwards at night as if in prayer. Originated from the rainforest in Brazil, it naturally loves humid conditions (and hates heaters). It loves a good mist every now and then, and thrives in a very bright -but indirect light- spot.
Want to learn its real name? Maranta Leuconeura Var. Kerchoveana. Now, challenge: read it twice and try to repeat it to someone around you. Good Luck!
The plant comes with its concrete pot, entirely designed and handmade by us in North London. The colour is the concrete's natural one, nothing has been added to it. Just love and patience.
- Homemade concrete planter included.
- Drainage included: no need to add any plate underneath. Happy days!
- Planter size: 7cmx7cmx7cm.
- Weight: About 350 grams.
HOW DO I TAKE CARE OF IT?
Exposition: Bright spot, avoiding direct sunlight. Examples? North/East facing windows.
Water: Keep soil moist at all times. Allow the top of the soil to dry out slightly before watering.
Temperature: Normal room temperature. Avoid placing it next to a heater.
- Repotting: Carefully take the plant out of the planter and put it in a bigger one.
- Observation is key. Checking your plant on a daily basis will help you getting to know it and monitoring its condition.
- 25ml of water at a time.
Use filtered water rather than tap water.
Rotate the plant every week to even its growth.
Remove yellow, dead or fallen leaves.
