Care Information

  • Site

    These plants favour dark spots, with specks of indirect, occasional sunlight.

  • Temperature

    The warmer the better. Keep away from cold drafts, and do not allow to drop below 12 Celcius. It also likes high humidity, so it's a top choice for a steamy bathroom. 

  • Water

    Water well in the summer, but never allow the soil to become waterlogged. Let the soil dry out a bit before watering again, and water sparingly during winter months when the plant stops growing. 

  • Feeding

    During spring and summer, a weak plant food can be applied once every 1-2 months. Do not feed during winter. 

  • Tip

    It's considered slightly poisonous, so keep away from nosy paws.

The Never-Never Plant

This product has no reviews yet.  Write a Review

Also known as the Fishbone Prayer Plant for its special characteristic of closing its leaves during dark, like a pair of hands in prayer. 

They can be found in the wild across the humid rainforest floors of South and Central America, as well as the West Indies. 

The evergreen leaves spread out widely from the central plant, but grow at a very manageable rate. 

A truly exotic leaf pattern, with a subtle maroon underside.
