This distinctive plant has stunning green leaves with red veins and pink undersides. It earned its name because of the way the leaves fold together at night, like hands closed in prayer. Best known for its colourful, patterned leaves that move up and down with daylight, the Prayer Plant is, of course, a member of the Calathea family. Comes with a perfectly fitting Elho pot made of recycled plastic.

♻️It’s not just our products that are green. 95% of our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable (and we’re working hard on that last 5%). As a company we’ve made a concerted effort to switch to sustainable packaging, it costs twice the price but we sleep better at night. Head to our delivery page, for the full lowdown.
