The Maranta Red Prayer Plant (Maranta Leuconeura) has its own internal clock exemplified in its daily rhythm. It lifts its leaves in the evening and lowers them in the morning, mimicking praying hands. The broad, oval leaves have two-color variegated spots with red veining on the top side and a reddish color on the bottom side, making it very festive to enjoy in any home or office.

About Maranta Red Prayer Plant

You would think this plant had muscles and tendons with the way the leaves move up and down depending on the time of day it is! An organ at the leaves' base produces swelling and shrinkage due to water passing into the cells. This horticulture phenomenon syncs with a rhythmic biological cycle recurring every 24 hours to create this movement in their leaves.

Care Level: Plays Hard to Get

This plant requires a little extra care.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Safe to be around pets.
