The Prayer Plant gets its common name from the fact that its leaves stay flat in the day and fold up like praying hands at night.
The Maranta genus includes a few dozen low-growing plants native to the American tropics.
Prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Water frequently in the growing season and when the top of the soil is getting dry to touch. Mist to increase humidity.

Prefers indirect bright light and will tolerate direct sunlight in the morning or evening. If positioned in a shadier spot the plant will offer less growth and require less water.
Thoroughly water, then allow the top few centimeters of compost to dry before re-watering. Water less in winter when the plant is growing more slowly. Over-watering can cause root rot.
Feed every second time you water through spring and summer with a quality liquid plant food. There is no need to feed this plant in winter.
This plant enjoys humidity. Place in a bathroom and/or mist regularly with water. Remove dust from the leaves with a damp cloth to improve photosynthesis.
