The Green Prayer Plant is has fabulous foliage! This tropical plant is famous for its distinctly beautiful and decorative 6-inch long leaves. The colorful marks on the leaves become more vivid as the plant matures.
It typically grows to 30 - 40cm tall and as wide, featuring broad-elliptic to oval, predominately green leaves with striking patterns, lines, blotches and shading.
POSITION You can hang or set your prayer plant near a window where it will get indirect sunlight. Never set your plant in direct sunlight as the sun will scorch the plant’s leaves, or leaves will develop blotches or patches and fade in colour intensity. The plant is generally tolerant of lower light areas. In the winter, when the plants go into dormancy (and sometimes die back completely), give them bright light to maintain growth.
WATER During the growing season, water frequently and never allow the potting soil to dry out. Water the prayer plant when the top of the potting soil is just starting to get dry. These plants are very susceptible to drought; however, to avoid fungal problems, try not to let water sit directly on the leaves or let the plant get soggy. Not enough water and overwatering can cause the leaves to turn yellow and drop from the plant. When watering, use water that is at least at room temperature if not slightly warm. In the winter months, reduce watering.
