4" Prayer Plant - Red
Prayer Plants (Maranta Leuconeura, Herringbone Plant) are spectacularly variegated ornamental houseplants with leaves that are dark green in the centre turning to a lighter green at the margins and alternate light splotches down the centre line. This particular variety has red veins running down the centre of the leaf and branching out in a herringbone pattern.
Just like their closely related cousin the Calathea, Prayer Plant leaves have the unusual characteristic of lying flat during the day and then closing upwards at night as if in prayer.
