Ctenanthe burle-marxii - Fishbone Prayer Plant

$ 12.00

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. 

Ctenanthe burle-marxii is a low maintenance plant, great for beginners. Place in medium to bright indirect light and water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry. Mist periodically.

Beautiful, full, healthy plant

I was worried about having a prayer plant shipped to the Midwest during winter, but it was extremely well packaged with a heat pack and plenty of padding. The plant itself is fuller than I expected, healthy, pest-free, and didn’t even experience much shipping shock. I’m very pleased and would definitely shop again. Thank you!
