Marantaceae are prized for their intricately patterned foliage and large colorful blooms. The name ‘prayer plants’ refers to their daily ritual of opening their leaves to the sunlight and folding them upward at night, resembling praying hands. The Marantaceae are the second largest family in the order Zingiberales, with about 30 genera and over 550 species. Although members of this family are native throughout the tropics, majority of species are found in the neotropics with its center of diversity in Brazil. New species are discovered every year and horticulturists constantly create extraordinary additions. Represented here are 73 forms, including 10 genera and 50 species. Despite the awareness and excitement surrounding this family, destruction of lowland tropical forest is placing these and many other tropical species at risk of extinction. Conservation efforts are needed to preserve these fascinating plants for future generations.
