Maranta leuconeura , commonly known as a prayer plant. The leaves on my plant are nice and open as it is in a lower light room in my basement. I have not found it to be too fussy, which was a surprise as it seemed when I first was looking up how to care for it that a lot of people end up losing theirs. I try not to let the soil dry out completely; and I do open the window shade most days. It seems to be doing alright. We are in winter season so I do not expect a lot of growth right now.
