We bought a Maranta and loved it. My husband wanted in on a free standing counter in the middle of a room. It gets some light but we live in seattle. It was fading fast so I moved it near the window and it is getting one new leaf. Is it hardy enough to come back to a beautiful plant or should I give up on it?

On plant Maranta leuconeura



I really can't stand to throw plants away but I'm afraid this might be hopeless.
