Not everyone is cut out to be a rattlesnake handler. I’m strictly for the plant parents with a bit of experience. Being from the rainforrest of Brazil, I have some pretty firm ideas about how I like my heat, light and humitdity, as well as how I like my leaves touched. And to add to my weirdness - my leaves point up at night and drop back down in the morning - which is why I’m also known as a Prayer Plant. I am strange and beautiul creature for sure.
What makes me happy:
I dont like cold, dry air. Or too much change in temp. I’m a rainforest plant - take me into the shower where I like it.
More water in the summer is my preference - but be careful not to water-log my roots or I’ll bite ya (actually I go yellow and refuse to talk to you)
Filtered to low light for me. Use the curtain to shade me from direct sun. Alternatively just somewhere nice and bright where I can see the world go by.
Why you're taking me home:
Fine around your fur babies.
You know your way around tricky plants. I’m not for amateurs.
