The Fascinator is just that - fascinating! The stunning leaves with touches of red and greens look feather like in their appearance, and wildly jungle-like in colour. Native to Costa Rica and Nicaraqua, your home will feel like tropical paradise with this striking, dramatic and tropical house plant in situ. The prayer plant is aptly known due to the movement of the leaves dependant on the lighting and time of day. You may even hear it move!

Collapsible content

What is the Prayer Plant Fascinator Known For?

The Prayer Plant 'Fascinator', or Maranta leuconeura, is best known for its striking leaf patterns and its unique daily movements, with leaves that fold up in the evening resembling hands in prayer. This fascinating behaviour, coupled with its vibrant green, red, and cream leaves, makes it a captivating addition to any indoor plant collection.

What Is the History of the Prayer Plant Fascinator?

The Prayer Plant draws its historical roots from the tropical rainforests of Brazil, where it grows in the understory. It was named after Bartolomeo Maranta, a 16th-century Italian physician and botanist. The 'Fascinator' variety is a later cultivar, selected for its especially vibrant leaf markings and robust growing habits.

Where Does the Prayer Plant Fascinator Originate?

Native to the Brazilian tropics, the Prayer Plant 'Fascinator' thrives in warm, moist, and shaded environments. Its origin in the dense forest floors has adapted it to flourish in the low-light conditions of many homes and offices.

How Do You Care for a Prayer Plant Fascinator?

Caring for a Prayer Plant 'Fascinator' involves mimicking its natural habitat: it prefers indirect sunlight, high humidity, and consistently moist soil. Avoid water with high fluoride or chlorine content and maintain a regular watering schedule to keep it thriving. A peat-based soil mixture can help replicate the plant's native soil conditions.

Are Prayer Plant Fascinator Toxic to Pets?

Yes, the Prayer Plant 'Fascinator' is pet-friendly. It is one of the safer houseplant options for households with curious pets as it does not pose a risk if ingested.

    I was sad that one of the plants … the large prayer plant came with multiple leaves broken and the pot was broken … I’ve repotted her and left the leaves on until new leaves grow.
