3. Brown Spot on Edge of Prayer Plant

Asked by Anonymous - September 22, 2011

I have a problem with my Prayer plant. It is getting brown spots on the edge of the leaves. Do you have an answer for me?

  • The prayer plant is sensitive to being underwatered. Unlike most houseplants, the soil should be kept moist at all times–do not allow it to dry out. Other possible causes of brown leaf spots could be dry air or too much direct light. Mist the foliage often and make sure it has bright, indirect light. Also, remove the affected leaves.
