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. 

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.

- 4" pot - specimens have 2-3 clumps, approx 4-6" tall
- 6" pot - specimens have 1-2 clumps, approx 6-8" tall

Ships in a plastic nursery pot, and includes detailed care instructions. Pictures show 6" specimen. These plants eventually grow to about 12-18". Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur. Marbled Clay Cachepot sold separately.

Ctenanthe burle-marxii - Fishbone Prayer Plant.

Hello folks at Pistils. I love my new plant. It came in 3 days, well packaged, in great shape. I love the change up from the supermarket plants available in my little town. Thanks for being there when I needed a January doldrums lift. Will I order again? You betcha! Susan

Prayer Plant

Very cute, but I was expecting a 6" plant, it was rather small for the price. I will however buy from this company again.
