The striking Ctenanthe is a plant originally found in tropical Central and South America. The plant is related to Calathea, has the same nice characteristic of pulling up its leaves in the evening. This means that you see the nice striped top of the leaf during the day, and when it gets dark the nice purple bottom. So, don’t be surprised if you hear some rustling in the evening, these are leaves that slide past each other!

Position: Place the plant in a light place, but not in direct sunshine.

300mm pot

Handy Growing Tips:

Keep the soil slightly moist; do not allow the soil to dry out. Give small amounts of water regularly rather than a lot at a time. In the summer once a week, in the winter once every 2 weeks.

Give Ctenanthe a little food every month.

If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be extremely hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. 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!
