Ctenanthe burle-marxii 'Amagris' has silvery green leaves that have a delicate dark green herringbone pattern and purple undersides. Though native to Southeastern Brazil, the Amagris originally appeared as a chance mutation of the Fishbone Prayer Plant at a Belgian nursery. Struck by its compact form and simple leaves, they decided to select for the mutation, and the 'Amagris' is now an officially recognized cultivar of the Ctenanthe burle-marxii! Like the parent plant, the Ctenanthe 'Amagris' has a delightfully compact growth form and a habit of raising its leaves at night and lowering them during the day, earning it a place amongst the "prayer plants."
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: High humidity helps Ctenanthe 'Amagris' thrive – mist periodically or set on a pebble tray. Pet friendly!
