Maranta Prayer

A Heavenly Addition to Your Home.

Maranta is commonly known as the Prayer plant because of the way in which their leaves fold together following the removal of bright light - a behavior called nyctinasty. These plants are closely related to Calathea genera, and have the same striking variegated leaves.

We ship two different varieties of prayer plants: the red prayer plant with a bright green and bold red pattern, and the green prayer plant, with dark blotches. 

Care and Maintenance

Keep this plant in bright indirect light, but not direct sun. Sun will fade the beautiful markings on the leaves. This plant prefers high humidity, so regular small amounts of water is ideal.
