Originated in Brazil and known as the Prayer Plant. It earned its name due to the way its leaves fold together at night, like hands closed in prayer. Its leaves unfold in the morning light, sometimes making a rustling sound. They have oval-shaped leaves that grow to about 5 in (12 cm) long. Prayer plants rarely bloom indoors, but sometimes grow tiny, white tubular flowers on long stems.
