Prayer Plant (Calathea orbifolia) can eventually grow to three feet tall but goes at a slow pace. In the meantime, you'll have time to count the silvery-green stripes on his slightly large handsome leaves. He plays the camouflage game by folding his leaves upward at night to bare his green leaf underneath like he's hiding his stripes to not be as noticeable. His movement gives an exciting characteristic to these plants and makes them every plant collector's challenge.

About Calathea Orbifolia

The Calathea orbifolia characteristics are much the same as others in the Marantaceae family. You can set your clock by the rising and lowering of their leaves. As the light changes and grows darker, the leaves move to get more light on the leaves. During the sunrise, the leaves lower to obtain more light on the leaves. Turgor pressure in the base of the plant gives it movement.

Fun Facts: You'll see a lot ...

You'll see a lot of movement from the Prayer Plant as its leaves rise and lower by the time of day it is. When it's nightfall, the leaves raise as if trying to reach the sky, giving you a peek at its purple underside. During the day, they relax and display their unusual striping. Another common name for it is the Prayer Plant, which signifies praying hands at night! Overall, the plant is a symbol of devotion and focus on a schedule. Keep one around to inspire dedication!
