Follow these instructions to keep your Prayer Plant healthy and happy.

  • Water: Keep the soil evenly moist to the touch, and do not let it dry out. Be careful, however, not to overwater. 
  • Light: Bright Indirect light for best results in variegation.
  • Humidity: Medium to high humidity is important. Either place it in a position with naturally high humidity, such as a bathroom or kitchen. Otherwise, place on a pebble tray.
