Ctenanthe, native to tropical Brazil, is a member of the Marantaceae family and is related to the calathea and prayer plant. These evergreen perennials are grown primarily for the beauty of their colorful leaves.

Light

Ctenanthes like bright indriect light. If there is insufficient light, new leaves appear solid green rather than patterned with attractive colors. If there is too much light, the colors in the leaves fade.

Water

Keep the soil evenly moist but never soggy. Ctenanthes do not like to dry out, and do not like cold or hard water.

Fertiliser

Fertilize monthly in the spring and summer diluting the plant food at 1/2 the recommended strength. Fertilise every other month in the Autumn and Winter. Never feed a Ctenanthe immediately after repotting, wait at least 6 weeks.

Temperature

Ctenanthes like warm consistent temperatures and will not tolerate temperatures below 15°C.

Humidity

High humidity is very important. If the air is dry, place your Ctenanthe on a pebble tray filled with water. Be sure the plant is sitting on the pebbles and not in the water.

Poisonous Plant

Ctenanthe plant is slightly poisonous, although it is often listed as non-toxic. It may cause individual allergic reactions. The ASPCA states that it is not poisonous to dogs and cats.

We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner plant food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!
