Maranta leuconeura, also known as a Prayer Plant, is native to the rainforests of Brazil. Prayer plants are known for their uncanny ability to follow the sun throughout the day by opening and moving their leaves to maximize their sun exposure. At night, they fold their leaves up to rest. This up and down movement is where the Prayer Plant’s nickname is derived from and sets an interesting spectacle during the day. Prayer Plants make for a fun and colorful indoor plant because of its natural movement and vibrant foliage patterns.
