Plant Care Tips: Fishbone Prayer Plant

  • Light: Prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight as this can scorch your plant’s leaves. 
  • Water: This prayer plant likes to be watered regularly. Keep its soil consistently moist and only allow the top few centimetres of soil to dry out before watering. Requires less frequent watering in winter.
  • Humidity: This is a tropical plant that loves humidity! Try keeping it in a terrarium or humid environments such as the bathroom or greenhouse. We also recommend misting the foliage at least once a week.
  • Temperature: Thrives at temperatures of 16-24°C. Avoid cold draughts and temperatures below 13°C. 
  • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix. 
  • Fertilizer: Feed once or twice a month with a weak fertilizer during the growing season (spring to summer). No need to feed during winter. 
  • Propagation: Propagate through division during spring. 

Pets: Non-toxic. However, we recommend keeping plants away from pets and children where possible. 

Fishbone Prayer Plant - Common Issues and Questions

Why does my Prayer Plant have brown leaves?

If the leaves of your prayer plant are turning brown, it’s most likely a sign that the humidity levels in your home are too low. Consider purchasing a humidifier or try misting the leaves more frequently. You can even try placing your plant in the bathroom where the humidity levels are particularly high!

When should I repot my Prayer Plant?

We generally recommend repotting your plant when it becomes root-bound. You will be able to tell if your plant has outgrown its pot when the roots start to peek out of the draining holes. Repot into a pot one size (5cm) larger than the current pot it is planted in. Use a fresh potting mix. 

Common pests: The Fishbone Prayer Plant is most vulnerable to spider mites and mealybugs. Keep an eye out for pests as they can damage and even kill your plant. If you spot any infestations, treat them as quickly as possible using insecticidal soap or neem oil.
