    The green leaves of this handsome house plant are threaded with bright red veins, as well as attractively patterned along their midrib with yellow-green splotches. All in all, it's a showy plant, and curious too, as the leaves tend to fold their leaves up at night - which is why they are commonly referred to as prayer plants. Please note that the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a black plastic pot). They do however make excellent potted plants, and if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

  • Home care: Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!). They like to be kept well watered, although this can be cut back a little in winter, and they thrive in high humidity, either grow it in a steamy room, mist it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened shingle.
