Place it less than 6 feet from a south-facing window to ensure it receives enough light to survive 💪.
We wouldn’t recommend testing its limits during this time of reduced sunlight intensity in Fort Worth, Texas ⛅.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Green Prayer Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
I love these. They grow so much and I love their prayer activity but they’re also pest magnets (spider mites 😖) so you gotta keep an eye out for that. And they’re sensitive to tap water and will likely brown if you use tap. May need distilled or filtered water.
