The Maranta Leuconeura 'Green Prayer Plant', which is also known as the prayer plant, is a fun and beautifully striking plant to own. It gets its nickname the "prayer plant" from the movement the leaves have. During the day the leaves lay flat but during the evening and night the leaves fold up like praying hands.
🌞 You will want to give these beauties bright indirect light.
💧 When watering your Maranta you will want to make sure you keep the soil moist. This means you will want to water your plant when it starts to feel slightly dry. Another fact with these plants is that they require high humidity. In order to achieve the high humidity they are looking for you are going to want to increase the humidity around your plant. You can do this by placing your plant in a bright spot in your bathroom, misting it throughout the day, investing in a humidifier or placing a tray of pebbles with water in it nearby.
