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.

Temperature: Normal room temperatures from 16-24°C but can cope with as low as 13°C.

Humidity: High humidity levels are an advantage. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently.
