Prayer plant lights up your space because it has variegated leaves that come in red, yellow, green and purple color. A perfect combination of pop colors!

If you want to experience the beauty of these colors, keep the indoor plants away from direct sunlight. Also, water it consistently and watch the leaves point upwards and join you in prayer at night. That’s why it is called the prayer plant.
