Our Prayer Plant comes in a 12cm Nursery Pot. 

Few people can resist the mesmerizing foliage of the Prayer Plant, with its curved reddish segments and layered hues of green. And neither should you! Coming straight from the Brazilian Rainforest, this beautiful plant companion will instantly become a welcomed member of your own home.

Prayer Plant received its name from its daily habit of folding up its leaves at night 'to pray'. Just another one of its quirky attributes. Place Maranta in a well-lit space, in a neutral coloured pot, and you've got yourself a statement plant if there ever was one!

They tend to grow flat and outwards, best appreciated from above.

Please note: Marantha are pet and human safe, but to look their best prefer to be out of reach od curious critters.
