I love the leaves on these! Have you noticed what they do as the evening light disappears?

Thanks Katy. Yours is beautiful too. I love how their leaves raise up like praying hands. The tiny plant in with this one is my regular prayer plant that broke apart last Winter. Just a tiny cutting. 🤞🤞 @gjones

I'm struggling to find a place shady enough for mine, it seems to detest much light at all, it's clinging to life right now

@hebelover Mine is in the dining room - one of the brightest room in the house. Its on top of a tall corner cabinet that gets no direct light and it does really well there. I water mine about once every ten days. Diane how much light does yours get?

Mine is near my small bathroom window on a shelf facing east. It gets the morning light. I originally had it on a plant stand near a west facing window and it did not do as well. Too much light I guess. It is happy where it is now with less light. @gjones @hebelover

They sure are. I almost missed them. My green prayer plant had white flowers. 💜🤍 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr those leaves do take all the attention 😍

They sure do. The flowers on plants with lovely foliage are usually just removed. I thought these were cute enough to enjoy for a day or two. It is just a young plant that needs its energy for the foliage. 😍 @kez001uk

@hkyfvr I like that you gave them a chance to bloom 😁 always feel guilty chopping off flowers but it’s for the greater good when the plants are small ☺️

Thanks Shelley. I have always liked this one so I hope I do it justice. I let my regular prayer plant get too heavy and the stems could not support the weight. A learning process. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️😊 @ShelleySnyder
