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. An ideal choice for anyone new to plant parenting, it makes the perfect gift in a stylish ceramic ribbed pot, with our own B&D mister.
What you might not know about this colourful Calathea, is that the Prayer Plant is actually a trailing plant and in more mature specimens you’ll see it start to grow horizontally and eventually trail downwards with its colourful leaves cascading.

Over the past 5 years we've really perfected our craft. We've developed time-tested sustainable packaging and packing tricks that ensure your plant will be delivered through the post in perfect condition.
We won a Silver Gilt medal for our debut exhibit at this years' Chelsea Flower Show's Houseplant Studios. Our concept 'The Plant School' featured an incredible 350 houseplants, including many of the plants you've come to know and love through our website. You can learn more about our concept over on our blog.
We're a dedicated team of plant-obsessed experts based at our nursery, tucked away in the Essex countryside. Each member of our team is as caring & knowledgeable as the next. Our days are devoted to nurturing plants (we've even been known to play music to them!) and carefully packing your orders.
Nothing makes us happier than making you happy (cheesy, but it’s true) which is why we do everything we can to provide a positive plant experience from start to finish. Your plant should arrive fresh and healthy - if for any reason it doesn’t, we’ll replace it for free within 30 days!
