Plant of the Month

Prayer Plant

Prayer Plant 2.jpg

 

Prayer plants (Maranta leuconeura) are low growing Brazilian jungle plants that are only hardy in zones 11 and 12. Outside of its growing zones, the plants are normally grown as houseplants. They make good houseplants because they need filtered sunlight rather than direct sunlight. Our homes are too dark for sun-loving plants, so plants that prefer shade, semi-shade or filtered light do best.

​​

Prayer plants are grown for their lovely foliage. The leaves are 6 inches long and display different colors depending on the variety. Most are green with spots that vary in color including light green, gray or brown. The undersides of the leaves are either light green or dark red. The most spectacularly colored variety has tricolor leaves of green with yellow spots and red veins.

The plants do not flower when grown indoors. Outdoors, the flowers are tiny, white, and barely noticeable.
