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 helps Fishbone Prayer Plant thrive – mist periodically or set on a pebble tray. Pet friendly!

What to Expect

You'll get a healthy Ctenanthe burle-marxii that meets our rigorous quality standards in a your choice of a 4" or 6" nursery pot – Marbled Clay Cachepot sold separately.

Such a gorgeous find

This plant is very beautiful. It shipped so nice from one coast to the other. No damage. No need to cut leaves. I love it.

Beautiful Plant!

Plant arrived in good shape, a little stressed but that is to be expected. After a couple of days it recovered and is doing well. Took a long time to ship but was worth the wait.

Beautiful prayer plant

Plant arrived carefully packaged and arrived a little dry, but that is to be expected. I immediately watered it and let it get indirect light. It perked up and looks beautiful. I’m still waiting another week for re-potting, as the instructions say.
