This lively pale green foliage has two rows of distinctive dark splotches on each leaf and also known as prayer plant; all leaves fold upwards nightly and open up again in the morning. Fascinating!
These plants prefer a brightly lit spot with partial sunshine, but can cope with lower light spaces if watering is reduced. In the height of summer make sure plants aren’t scorched by direct sunlight as this can result in brown, washed out leaves. Turn the pot frequently to prevent leaves turning towards the light.
These plants prefer damp soil. Water thoroughly to prevent soil from drying out, but make sure it is never sitting in standing water as this can lead to root rot.
These plants prefer free draining, rich soil. If your pot doesn’t have drainage holes, be careful not to water too much to avoid excess moisture sitting around the roots, as this can lead to root rot.
