Prayer plants can be difficult to maintain indoors during the winter months. It's important to keep the plant in a humid area, near a sunny window, and make sure that the soil remains moist. If the leaves turn brown and curl up from lack of humidity, the plant may go dormant. Don't throw it away until after spring and when you can be sure that it is dead. It may come back from rhizomes.
