The Prayer Plant, native to Brazil. Asia, and Africa, is a very unique plant. The large patterned leaves of a Prayer Plant, with hues of red, green, brown, and cream, lift up and fold together each evening as though praying and open again the next morning. Although the flowers of a Prayer Plant are small and insignificant, the patches of colour on the leaves of a Prayer Plant get darker and more vibrant as the plant gets older. A Prayer Plant requires a warm humid environment in order to grow well.
LIGHT CONDITIONS: Prayer Plants do well in medium to high light, but no direct sun. When there is not enough light, the leaves of a Prayer Plant close at night and do not fully open during the day. When a Prayer Plant gets too much light, the color in the leaves starts to fade.
WATER CONDITIONS: Keep the soil of a Prayer Plant moist but never soggy. Unlike most houseplants, a Prayer Plant does not like to dry out before you water. Due to the volume of warmth and humidity the Prayer Plant prefers, we recommend placing it near a humidifier.
