Prayer Plant (Red Maranta) Air Purifying Indoor Plant- Live Houseplant Plant
Prayer plants are some of the most beautiful houseplants you can find. Their large, variegated leaves create stunning displays in hanging baskets or macrame sets as they spread low and wide. Even more stunning is that at dusk, the leaves fold together on an upward motion, as if in prayer. This variegated Red Maranta is the traditional example of a Prayer Plant displays various shades of green with rich red veins running through them and forming elegant patterns that change as these mature with the plant.
This plant is recommended by NASA's Clean Air Study for it's air purifying attributes. Add one (or a combination of different purifying plants) for every 100 sq. ft. of indoor space and say goodbye to 90% of your indoor toxins!
Best of all, they are non-toxic to pets!
They like bright, indirect sunlight though are fairly tolerant of low light environments.
Prayer plants like to be kept evenly moist and just barely damp to the touch. Do not let soil get too dry between waterings. They also need high humidity in order to thrive. To give your prayer plant the microclimate it likes, group it with other plants or place it on a dish filled with pebbles and water (while making sure that the plant isn't actually resting in the water). Or keep near a humidifier.
Comes in a white, custom-made 4" planter with drainage. 3D printed inhouse with sustainable, plant-based materials. And potted in premium soil.
