After four years of searching

I found my favourite, indoor plant yesterday. In the supermarket!

Here, it’s called Prayer plant — probably because it folds its leaves at nightfall — with a bit of imagination, it looks like hands.

In Sweden, this plant is called Mose’s Clay tablets [in a straight translation, that is].

I was happy to find it, and I will take good care of “little Moses”

    1. Gardenia is tough … it can’t stand water directly from the tap, and stuff like that. A lot of fuss about it, but it’s well worth it once it’s flowering.. I just can’t find any here..

  1. It’s botanical name is Maranta leucoreura, but commonly known as the Prayer Plant because of the way it’s leaves curl at at night, quite amazing really!
    A little tip for maintenance – although it is somewhat tolerant of low light conditions, it usually does best in bright indirect sunlight. It prefers well-drained soil and requires high humidity to thrive. Keep moist, but not soggy. Use warm water and feed every two weeks, from spring through fall, with fertilizer.
    Hope that helps to keep your long searched-for prayer plant healthy for a long time!

  2. Jeg har aldrig hørt om den, men jeg ved ikke så meget om (stue)planter så det gør noget.
    Min favoritter er ginseng og kaktus – mit nyeste påfund er indendørs nåletræer.
    Tillykke med din nye plante, pas godt på den, husk at tale med den hver dag.

  3. Love your ‘little Moses’ plant & to think after all these years you found one in the supermarket of all places??!!?? What does McDuff think about it???
    Nylablue dug in all my plants so b4 I moved I had to give them all away….
