4" Prayer Plant

Regular price $20.99

Maranta leuconeura, or more commonly known as the Prayer Plant, is a one-of-a-kind foliage plant that flaunts a striking display of patterned foliage. The name originated from the fact that the unique-looking leaves remain flat during the day but fold up, resembling praying hands, at night. The decorative foliage is usually tri-coloured, featuring deep green, velvet-like sheets with red veins and yellow splotches along the center. The Prayer Plant makes a great indoor houseplant for shelves, window sills, or desks.
