Where should I put the Prayer Plant?
Keep in a filtered bright to medium light but away from direct light.
Does the Prayer Plant need feeding?
Feed with a liquid feed every month from April - August. We sell vegan, organic plant food, have a look!
How often should I water?
The soil should never be allowed to dry out completely. Not enough water and overwatering can cause the leaves to turn yellow and drop from the plant. If the leaves begin to turn yellow, water the plant less often if the soil is still wet or more often if the soil appears dry between waterings.
Increase the humidity in the room with a humidifier, mist regularly or set a pan or dish filled with pebbles and water below the plant to increase the room’s humidity, brown tips will show the humidity is too low
Are they suitable if you have pets?
