    (moved to Indoor Plants forum - please be more attentive of where you post in the future, you have 42 posts now and I think I've had to move the majority of them to different forums. Use the navigation at the top of the page to discern what forum you are in before posting)

    Well, I do wish the site was a bit easier to learn to use. No need to apologize.

    Your Maranta ("Prayer plant") is called that because leaves fold up at night like praying hands. It likes only moderate light (not being right in a SW window, though not in a 'dark' place), and do allow some of the soil to dry out between waterings - you'll have to gauge this over time, but definitely don't keep it sodden all the time. I think they're beautiful!
