Ctenanthe 'Amagris'

$ 28.00

Ctenanthe '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!


You'll get a healthy Ctenanthe 'Amagris' that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 6" nursery pot – Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!
