This interesting plant sports a beautiful red and green pattern on 4-inch oval leaves. Should it dry out a bit, the leaves curl up tightly, hence the common name ‘Prayer Plant’. I have two plants, one small and one large – they serve as a nice textural contrast to the other, mostly dark green companion plants in the sunroom.
Hi! I'm Lorie and I wrangle plants in a muddy, feral shade garden in the Pacific Northwest. I built this site to serve as a gardening journal and quasi-accurate record of planting successes and failures. My goal is to help "future me" be a better gardener. I hope what I've learned along the way can be useful to you too. Thanks for visiting!
