Maranta Prayer Plant is struggling
Nothing I do for this plant seems to make it happy! The edges of the lower leaves have all turned brown. I've tried various sun exposures but am not sure which is best. Right now it is about 8 feet away from an east facing window. I've also tried over the last few months to have it right next to that window as well as in the middle of a long room with east and west facing windows. I live in Baltimore which constantly feels like a bathtub because of the high humidity, and I mist the plant every day, so humidity is not the issue. I water it about once every two weeks depending on the soils dryness - I usually let it get mostly dry but not totally bone-dry before watering. The upper leaves look healthy. The plant never folds its leaves at night but rather pulls them upright a little and let's them droop lower during the day. I wish it would curl up! Any ideas about how to keep this plant happier would be appreciated.
