Ctenanthe setosa has silvery-blue variegation that immediately captures your attention, complemented by rosy-hued stems and purplish leaf undersides. 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 setosa has an upright growth habit, growing a bit taller than many other members of the genus – just give it plenty of humidity, and it will reward you with an abundance of patterned foliage.
• Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: High humidity helps Ctenanthe setosa thrive – mist periodically or set on a pebble tray. Pet friendly!
