A stunning addition to our range of Prayer plants with a truly unique set of patterns making up the leaves of each plant. The thin delicate stems hold up the large oval leaves which unfurl in the morning and close up again at night, making it a member of the prayer plant family. Once it's in place, allow it to adapt to its environment and flourish.
A truly magnificent plant that will add colour, character and depth to a shadier corner or the home or office.
