I brought this plant home having done zero research into prayer plants 😑.
The poor girl was in low humidity which meant the leaves curled up, which I thought meant she needed more water, which lead to overwatering, which lead to fungus gnats, which lead to me letting her dry out too much, which lead to spider mites, which lead to a homemade neem/ dish soap mixture, which lead to all the leaves yeeting themselves off the plant 😑.
I repotted her surprisingly very healthy roots and left the pot basically alone (only watering when dry). After three months she’s making a come back and the tiny baby leave are even praying!!!!!!

Easiest “calathea” type plant I’ve had so far even tho it’s technically not a calathea. Grows pretty fast and looks beautiful!
