Prayer Plant Flower
This little flower represents a small personal victory for me. I have been trying to get a picture of a Prayer Plant flower for years. First they don’t seem to be very free flowering and second the flower is so small it is difficult to get a close up of.
Prayer Plants are easy to grow as houseplants or outdoors (if it doesn’t freeze). The main condition you must supply is the right amount of light. Too much light and the nice coloration of the leaves fades some indirect sun is best. It likes shady conditions and moisture.
Vanda Trevor Rathbone ‘Banjong’
Just to balance out the little Prayer Plant flower here is a big spray of purple Vanda Orchids.
