The striking Ctenanthe Amagris is a plant originally found in tropical Central and South America.

Simlair to Ctenanthe setosa "Grey Star" has more elongated leaf with a more acute tip and looks like leaves are larger, but otherwise it looks pretty close.
A low growing ground cover featuring silver foliage with thin green herring-bone pattern.
The plant is related to Calathea, and 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!
  • Place the plant in a light place, but not in direct sunshine.
  • Keeps 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.
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!


*Disclaimer: We love our plant babies, we talk to them, sing to them, we even cuddle them at times! And we pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully. However, we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. And I cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen! So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plants do not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered. Just email our customer service team spottedquollhobart@gmail.com with a quick pic (phone pics are excellent, and we love a good selfie). We will either replace the plants pronto or refund you (whatever works best).
