Green Prayer Plant


Category: Tag:


I’m the Green Prayer Plant. I get my name because during the day I spread my beautiful leaves out and about and at night I raise my hands in the air in a prayer position. I am pretty easy to care for but I require a little bit of attention. I look great in a window sill or on a shelf enjoy my unique leaves. My leaves are non-toxic to pets and will help purify the air in your space. I’m a great choice for new plant parents.
