An occasional spray of mist is my beauty secret to looking fabulous!


I can handle a little shade that's thrown my way, but I prefer to be in bright, indirect sunlight.


Everything in moderation is my motto, so I like to be watered little but often, keeping my soil moist.

Top tip

A rarer Calathea, the Lil' Jungle Velvet will curl its leaves all day if it's not impressed with your care.

About Lil' Warszewiczii Prayer Plant

It doesn't get more luxurious than the Lil' Warszewiczii Prayer Plant. Just the name alone has you picturing yourself relaxing in a soft velvety hammock in its Costa Rican home, listening to the sounds of the jungle and munching on smooth dark chocolate while sipping on rich earthy coffee. If that doesn't have you clicking 'add to basket' on this Lil' Prick, then its reasonably simple care needs should. Keep your Calathea Warscewiczii in bright, indirect sunlight and regularly water it to keep it looking its best. If its leaves begin to curl, simply give it a little more water. Luckily, this tropical indoor prayer plant doesn't need an extra hot and humid jungle environment. It's perfectly happy in temperatures between 18-23°C (min 15°C) and with regular humidity.

Not only does the Lil' Warszewiczii Prayer Plant look good, it feels incredible too. Its soft velvety leaves and patterned foliage are a treat for the senses. Add a touch of decadence to your living room, or bedroom, or feel as though you’re stepping into your own jungle as you walk in your front door by placing your Lil' Prick in the hallway. You can even display it on your office desk as it is an average grower and won't get bigger than 90cm (with repotting). This stunning plant looks and feels good enough to eat, so it's just as well that it's non-toxic - meaning pets and little ones are safe around it. Although it definitely doesn't taste as good as it looks - so we'd recommend eating some velvety chocolate, not this velvety plant!
