4″ Prayer Plant – Maranta Red


The leaves of this plant move up and down, based on the time of day! The movement ‘up’ in the evening is where its name ‘Prayer Plant’ comes from as it looks like hands folded in prayer. How fun is that?

Latin name: Maranta leuconeura

Light conditions: Place your Red Prayer Plant in bright, indirect light. Avoid placing in direct sun, as it will cause the leaves to fade loose the strong colours, as well as damage the leaves,

Watering conditions: Water your Prayer Plant when the top 1/4 of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage holes at the bottom of the growers pot and don’t let your plant sit in water. Prayer Plant prefers a humid environment, so misting often is helpful.
