The Dirt

Native to forests of Brazil. The prayer plant gets its name since the leaves raise upright at night and unfold during the day in order to receive the sun. Leuconeura means “white-veined”, referring to the leaves. This plant is named after Bartolomeo Maranta who is an Italian botanist of the 16th century.  

Part Sun


This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


High


Water twice a week. Before watering, feel the soil, the top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet, you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.


Pet Friendly


Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).
