curly leaves - Knowledgebase Question

Morton Grove, IL
Question by olive3520

I just repotted a prayer plant that has about 15 leaves, almost all of which are curled up! What am I doing wrong? I used a clay pot. Does it need more water, less sunlight (it's in a west open window), no drafts? Help!

More than likely the plant is just showing some stress from being transplanted. Curling leaves can also indicate the need for a little more light. Don't put it in direct sunlight, but do more it a little closer to a window. Give it a week in its new spot. If there's no improvement, move it a little closer to a window. Within 2-3 weeks it should recover from the transplant shock and begin new growth. Enjoy your houseplant!
