New Product Tab

  • You can hang or set your prayer plant near a window where it will get indirect sunlight.
  • Never set your plant in direct sunlight as the sun will scorch the plant’s leaves.
  • You can also use a general-purpose houseplant potting soil, as long as it is well-draining.
  • If you are using soil that does not drain well, add per-lite or coarse sand to the mixture.
  • During the growing season, water frequently and never allow the potting soil to dry out.
  • Not enough water and over watering can cause the leaves to turn yellow and drop from the plant.
