Maranta leuconeura

This beautiful forest-dwelling plant is native to the tropics of Brazil boasts beautiful red lines and mesmerizing leaves that move throughout the day -- lifting and lowering, as if in prayer, which earned them their name. 

As houseplants, their sideways growth encourages them to hang down as they get longer and heavier, which makes them lovely hanging plants for the ceiling or shelves.

Keep your Prayer Plant in medium to bright indirect sunlight, and water once every 7-10 days. Like other types Calatheas, the Prayer Plant likes its soil to be moist, but not soggy -- let this plantita dry out about 50-75% of the way through before watering again! 

Growing this plant near a humidifier or in the bathroom will help avoid crisping ends, and keep its leaves remaining lush.

The plant shown in the photo of this listing is a 6" Prayer Plant. This plant is completely safe for pets! 


If you’re worried about getting your water schedule right, we recommend using a Moisture Meter! These handy tools will help you gauge if your plant needs water or not, without the mess of sticking your hands in the soil to check. 

If a plant is out of stock, we apologize – we’re very grateful for our community’s support, and can sell out of certain plants quite quickly! We get new plants about once a week and try to source all our community’s favs as fast as we can. 

If you’re local to the LA area, we recommend coming into the shop when you can, especially if you’re looking for a new plant! We have much more plants in our store than we display online, as well as a full backyard greenhouse that houses our discounted rehab plants that need a bit more TLC from a new home. 

NOTE: Decorative pot not included.
