Prayer Plant Care

Posted by Alexander Holdinghausen on

Prayer Plants feature unique foliage with feathered, painterly-like veins. The bold foliage makes Prayer Plants perfect for window sills, mantles, or shelves that need a splash of color. Prayer Plants get their name from the way the leaves fold in the evening, resembling hands folded in prayer.

 

Light

Place your Red Prayer Plant in bright, indirect light. Avoid putting it in direct sun, too much sun will fade the leaf colors and burn the foliage.

Water

Water your Prayer Plant when the top 25% of the soil is dry. Water until liquid flows through the drainage hole at the bottom of the pot and discard any water that has accumulated in the saucer.

Humidity

Your Prayer Plant prefers a humid environment. Mist often.

Temperature

Your plant will grow well in temperatures between 15-25 degrees during the day and above 10 degrees at night. Keep it away from drafts, especially during the winter months.A

Food

Feed once a month during the spring and summer with a liquid fertilizer for indoor plants.

Toxicity

The Red Prayer Plant is non-toxic to cats, dogs, and humans.

Additional Care

You can prune your Prayer Plant to encourage fuller, more vigorous growth. Use a sterilized pair of sharp scissors and clip the stems right above a leaf node. The plant will grow new shoots directly below the cut area making for a bushier appearance.
