The classic, collectible 'Fishbone prayer plant' has glossy light and dark green patterned, oval shaped leaves.  The underside of the leaves is a deep burgundy color.  


Fishbone prayer plants are so named for their habit of having their leaves turn vertically up during the night.  The change in leaf direction is dramatic, and can have the appearance of 'prayer hands'.


This species is relatively easy to care for, but needs a humid environment to thrive.
