Ctenanthe are related to Maranta, Calathea and Stromanthe. All are known and cherished for their extraordinary decorative foliage and are sometimes called Prayer Plants due to the way the leaves close upwards in a prayer-like fashion in the dark.

The Ctenanthe setosa Compact Star has silver leaves with a lovely bold, dark grey-green, herring-bone striped pattern and purple undersides.

The Never-Never Plant is also known as Fishbone Prayer Plant and in parts of Europe they are also known as Stromanthe.

Horty Hints

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. Brown leaf tips may occur.

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.
