The Deets:

Prayer plant care isn’t difficult as long as you address its specific needs. As a tropical plant, it has requirements for humidity, temperature and water! Obvs. 

The leaves of the PP are strikingly beautiful. It has wide oval leaves with a range of variegation, depending on the variety. In the rainforests where it originates, the maranta plant blooms in the spring with small, white flowers. While this rarely occurs indoors, the plant’s stunning leaves more than make up for the lack of flowers.

When they receive the right care, the maranta plant is one of the most beaut indoor plants you can grow.
