My fav plant EVER its' an oldie but a goodie!

Care Information

  • Site

    Light to dark shade in summer. Brighter in winter but keep out of direct sun, this will dull the colour of the leaves, and could be fatal!

  • Temperature

    Keep warm minimum of 16°C / 60°F.

  • Water

    Keep well watered in summer, Maranta loves high humidity mist when you can and keep the compost moist in the summer. Brown tips show that the humidity is too low.

  • Feeding

    Feed with a very weak solution when you water. Don't give it a strong feed every now and then.

  • Tip
    Do not re-pot too often and use a peat based compost.

If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!

Delivery Options - Spend $99 or more online in our Plantary and we offer FREE delivery within Tasmania.


-        Flat Rate $20 shipping for plants within Australia, this for example would cover say 2 x 130mm plants that we bare root and can fit in a small satchel. Note, for much bigger plants we may need to charge a little more than the $20 and this would be on a case-by-case basis with our aim to ship for the least amount possible. You may choose to cancel the order should shipping not be acceptable to you. 

Please select $20 Plant Shipping at checkout.

Note:  Plants shipped to mainland Australia will arrive bare rooted.

We CAN NOT ship plants to WA.

*Disclaimer:  We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!

So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plant did not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered just email our customer service team and we will either replace the plants pronto or refund you.
