Prayer plants are hardy indoor plants with stunning variegated foliage which make them statement pieces. The leaves lie flat during the day and fold upward at night, as if in prayer.  Prayer plants are relatively low-maintenance they spread low and wide, they can be grown in hanging baskets or larger containers. 


Keep in a filtered bright to medium light but away from direct light. 


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.

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.


Use a pot with a drainage hole and Well-drained peat based compost.
