Marantas are beautiful house plants grown for their bold and striking foliage. The oval, variegated leaves are intricately patterned in a range of colours and patterns that look like an artist’s brushstrokes. The undersides of the leaves are often dark red.
Marantas are nicknamed prayer plants – they close up their leaves at night, like hands in prayer, before opening them up again at dawn. This daily movement is known as nyctinasty and is fascinating to witness.
Keep the soil consistently moist when your Prayer Plant is actively growing in spring and summer, but reduce water from fall through late winter. Your Red Prayer Plant does not like its soil to be too wet, nor too dry. When watering, use lukewarm water and make sure to water the soil, not the leaves.
Prayer plants need high humidity in order to thrive. It may be best to introduce a humidifier to the environment its within to ensure this!
While prayer plants can tolerate low light conditions, they do best in bright, indirect light. They don’t like direct sunlight. Too bright = bleached leaves; Not enough light = leaves won’t open all the way in the morning, so watch for this signal as well.
