Red Prayer Plant
Maranta leuconeura

Gabriel is from the tropics in Brazil and loves to dance in the moonlight. He gets his nickname "prayer plant" from his leaves folding up at night, which mimics hands praying. It's been said he does this to make sure his roots get access to rainfall. Aww, thoughtful and handsome—swipe right?

Low to bright indirect light. Direct light will burn his leaves.

SM: ~10" tall and a 4" pot.

Pro-tip: Use filtered water when watering, or let tap water sit for a day prior. This prevents leaf tip burn. Text us at 646-430-8699 for tips!
