Description

This beautiful houseplant makes a bold statement! With its striped green leaves and deep purple red underside, these gorgeous plants are also known as prayer plants, their leaves lie flat by day but fold upwards by the evening. These plants also have air-purifying qualities; Spray the leaves once a week to prevent the leaf edges from drying out. Always keep the soil moist without letting the plant stand in water. These jungle-loving plants are happy in indirect sunlight. Happy in temperatures 15-24 degrees but will tolerate as low as 13 degrees.

How to care for your plants

  • Delivered via overnight courier, safely packed and wrapped upright in a box.

  • Your plant’s pot should have holes in the bottom so it is able to drain water easily.

  • If reusing a pot that had other plants in it, it is recommended you wash the pot, killing any mould or bacteria.

  • Do not over water your plant as the roots will rot.

  • Most plants need to be kept by a good source of natural light.

  • You should fertilise your plant every two months. You can use all purpose fertiliser.

  • Any dead or fallen leaves should be removed to prevent bacteria and mould. Dead branches should also be removed.
