 how this nature nurtures you 

Prayer plants are expert air purifiers, filtering toxins and impurities out of your environment.

In traditional medicine, they are regarded for their anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antimicrobial properties.

They follow the circadian rhythm, and symbolize gratitude with the daily dance of their leaves, reminding us to celebrate and give thanks for the cycles of nature.

Think jungle. They like to be moist, but not soggy. Water when top 3 centimeters of soil feels dry


Will tolerate low light, but prefers medium, indirect light


16-30 degrees Celsius


Enjoys humidity, but does not require it. Mist occasionally.


Non-toxic to humans and animals


Feed every month in the spring and summer with an all purpose fertilizer.  Apply to damp soil so you don't burn the roots.
