Ctenanthe burle-marxii - Fishbone Prayer Plant

$ 14.00
Size

Ctenanthe burle-marxii is a compact houseplant that makes a bold tropical statement. Its bright green leaves are striped with alternating lance-shaped bands, and have deep purple undersides and stems. Ctenanthe (along with their close relatives Calatheas and Marantas) are commonly called "Prayer Plants" because their leaves lie flat by day, but fold upwards in the evenings. Ctenanthe burle-marxii is nicknamed the "Fishbone Prayer Plant" due to the unique leaf pattern. 

Plant Care

• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: Extra humidity helps Fishbone Prayer Plant thrive – mist periodically or set on a pebble tray. Pet friendly! Check out our Prayer Plant Care Guide for more in-depth information.

Love this plant!

Great experience , but waiting is a little long I’m just not that patient and really excited. The Prayer Plant arrived in perfect condition. Healthy with all leaves intact, shiny, and really beautiful. Thank you! Now… how to keep it this way??? Hmmmm I can’t wait for my other orders. I ordered a lot while the weather is still cooler here in San Diego. Please ship them quick
