The Ctenanthe burle marxii Amagris is slow growing with pale grey-green, oval leaves and dramatic dark green curving stripes. The leaves are wonderfully offset by a deep purple stem and leaf underside.
Combine it with Maranta, Calathea or Ctenanthe Amabilis for an authentic indoor rainforest vibe.
Ctenanthe Amagris leaves close upwards at night like other prayer plants. As with the Amabilis it is also commonly referred to as the Never Never Plant and Fishbone Plant.
Warm Water Weekly! These plants like a lot to drink in the summer, sometimes 4 times per week. Use room temperature water, to keep the soil evenly moist, but not soggy.
Wipe leaves with a damp cloth to remove accumulated dust. Avoid using leaf shine as this will damage the foliage.
Bright and Bushy! The leaves of this plant close up at night and open during the day. If your plant is struggling to open, it is too shaded. Give it a helping hand with some brighter light.
