How to take care of Me:
If the tips of the leaves are turning brown or curling up, the plant is getting too much light. Another cause for brown tips can also be the chlorine found in tap water. Use filtered water or let water sit for 24 hours before watering the plant.
Direct sunlight can scorch the leaves of the prayer plant and can quickly kill the plant. It prefers bright but indirect sunlight and is generally tolerant of lower light areas.
Prayer plants do not like to be dry. Keep the soil evenly moist all of the time, but never let it get soggy. When watering, use water that is at least at room temperature if not slightly warm.
A general purpose houseplant potting soil can be used, so long as it is well-draining. If you’re using soil that doesn’t drain well, add perlite or coarse sand to the mixture.
To improve drainage, add rocks or gravel to the bottom of your pot and be sure that the pot has a drainage hole.
Prayer plants should be fed every two weeks. Use a high quality water-soluble houseplant food.
If you want to encourage more vigorous growth, you can prune your prayer plant. Use a sterilized pair of garden scissors and clip the stems right above a leaf node.
The plant will respond by sending out new shoots directly below the cut area, making for a bushier appearance!
