  • The Prayer Plant is a favorite for new plant lovers and master gardeners alike. A pet-friendly indoor plant, the prayer plant (Maranta leuconeura) gets its name from the way in which the leaves fold up at night like praying hands. For many, this beautiful plant symbolizes gratitude. Native to Brazil, the Prayer Plant will thrive in humid conditions so remembering to mist your plant daily is not only good for the plant but also a nurturing opportunity for you.

  • Your Prayer Plant arrives already planted in custom soil that will provide it with the nutrients it needs to thrive. This beautiful, low maintenance desktop plant only needs a little nurturing, water, and indirect sunshine!

    Your Desktop Plant will come with:

    Bamboo Planter – A reusable planter made of sustainably sourced bamboo, and includes planter liner and tray. The planter measures approximately 5” x 5” x 5”. 

    Foundation – The Gardenuity Foundation is custom blended seasonal compost, full of nutrients for your plants to thrive.

    Tropical Serum – The Gardenuity Tropical Serum is a soil amendment and matched to the nutritional needs of your tropical plant.

    Mister Spray Bottle – Fill with water and mist your plant daily.

    Decorative Moss – The moss is only for aesthetic purposes. You can remove or keep as much as you want around the base of your plant.

  • When your plant arrives, take it out of the box as soon as you can and remove any travel attire. Check your plants' soil + make sure it is well-hydrated. If it feels dry, place it in a shallow dish of water for 15-20 minutes and allow it to soak up the water it needs. 

    Printed plant care cards are included.


    {icon_sunlight}LIGHT{/icon_sunlight} Your Prayer Plant needs 4-5 hours of indirect, natural light every day. (Bright, indirect light is usually found near a south, east, or west facing window. Shield your Prayer Plant from direct sunlight.)

    {icon_temperature}TEMPERATURE{/icon_temperature} Prayer Plants prefer household temperatures between 60 and 80℉. 

    {icon_watering}WATER{/icon_watering} Water your plant depending on the season. During Spring and Summer, water your plant twice a week from the bottom up. During Fall and Winter, water your plant once a week. Never allow the soil to completely dry out as the Prayer plant is susceptible to drought.

    Use warm to room temperature water. Simply remove the bamboo planter from the drip tray and pour water around the base of the plant. Remember to never let water sit directly on the leaves. Allow any excess water to drain out the bottom before placing back on the tray.

    {icon_feeding}FEEDING{/icon_feeding} Nourish and feed the soil of your plant once per week with the Gardenuity Tropical Serum. 

    {icon_humidity}HUMIDITY{/icon_humidity} Prayer plants thrive in humid conditions and will appreciate a mist every morning.

    {icon_petfriendly}TOXICITY{/icon_petfriendly} Your Prayer Plant is considered non-toxic and pet-friendly.

    {icon_additionalInfo}ADDITIONAL INFO{/icon_additionalInfo}Do not place your Prayer Plant in direct sunlight, as that can cause the leaves to fade and scorch.
