Calatheas need a little bit more attention than other plants, but still pretty easy to care for. Many prayer plants require lower light than other popular plants, and with the proper care, they bring color, geometry—and movement. Prayer plants open and close depending on the time of day and the available light. Their foliage is attractive on both sides of the leaves, bringing a different vibe at different times of day. In addition, they’re non-toxic. Homes with pets or children need not worry.
