Q.Why Is My Prayer Plant Growing From 1 Stem?

Zone 76537 | PamaC added on September 25, 2022 | Answered

My prayer plant is growing bigger but off of only one stem (see photo). What do I do? I have seen that it is easy to propagate this plant, but I don’t know where the leaf nodes are. This is my first prayer plant & I am a beginner plant mom. Thank you so much, Pamela Cunningham

The leaf node is where the leaf meets the stem. Cutting the tip and leaving 3 or 4 leaves on that tip may get you another plant, if rooted properly, It may also force branching on your original.

Offering proper conditions will ensure branching and good health. This article will help:
