Ctenanthe burle-marxii - Fishbone Prayer Plant

$ 12.00
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: High humidity help Fishbone Prayer Plant thrive – mist periodically or set on a pebble tray. Pet friendly!

Wonderfully full little plant

Quite healthy and very full plant. So many leaves on it. Very impressed. New leaves unfurling every week. One of my instant favs. Love to watch it close its leaves and reopen each day. Just all around wonderful experience.

Another great order

Received my plant in two day’s! It was really fast shipping. It came perfectly wrapped with little leaf damage or soil spillage. The plant was a lot bigger than I expected for a 4in! Thanks again Pistils!

Lovely Beautifully Leafed Plant

I've been really happy with the fishbone prayer plant. It's unfurled several new leaves since its arrival, and interestingly they are all a bit lighter in color than the older leaves. It's a beautiful plant with lovely markings, and I love how the leaves all stand themselves up for the night.
