Prayer Plant

Zone 48532 | Mmk added on March 25, 2016 | Answered

My prayer plants leaves are no longer standing up nice. All of a sudden, just at the base of the leaves, all of the leaves have pointed down. I did move it to a new house and at one point I noticed that it must have become water logged, as the water was not absorbing into the soil. I didn't water for a bit, then resumed as normal. Any thoughts?

The soil should be moist but never soggy. The plant may be suffering from root rot.
The plant tends to continue to slowly die, if the root rot is extensive.
If the plants pull away easily from the soil or even began to smell, you may want to dispose of and start with a new plant.
