The Pinstripe Prayer Plant sports lustrous bands of color that earn it the apt nickname of the “pinstripe plant.” The oval, dark olive green leaves have numerous pinstripes in vivid pink and the leaf undersides are reddish maroon. The common name Prayer Plant refers to the leaves, which tend to fold in at night and open up in bright daylight.
- Light: Indirect Sunlight – This plant needs at least some natural light so place it somewhere with windows nearby.
- Water: Very Thirsty - This plant is very thirsty and needs to be checked on 2-3 times per week and watered when the top of the soil feels dry to the touch. It is best to use distilled water because this plant is sensitive to salts and fluoride.
