hjemmehage ::: maranta leuconeura

»Maranta leuconeura, prayer plant, native to the Brazilian Rainforest, the specific epithet leuconeura means ›white-veined‹, referring to the leaves. Small, white flowers appear during the growing season, although this is rarely observed in houseplants and the flowers are not of particular value in comparison to the attractive foliage. The leaves have a habit of lying flat during the day, and folding in an erect position at night as if in prayer for evening vespers, hence the common name ›prayer plant‹. This behaviour is an example of a diurnal rhythm.«
