Ctenanthe Oppenheimiana is also known as the Never Never Plant. She’s a striped grey and grey-green non-toxic foliage plant with so much character you’ll want to fill your house like a jungle.
Check out her silvery leaves with mid-green regular stripes that look painted on.So don’t be surprised if you hear some rustling in the evening, these are leaves that slide past each other!
Oppenheimiana is an easy grower that enjoys the shade. Pop one on your office desk, bathroom window sill, coffee table, fireplace, dining table, kids’ rooms – she loves it anywhere she can hide from direct light.
Outside, Oppenheimiana creates excellent ground cover in shady gardens that are sheltered from the blazing sun – such as mass planted under trees.
Ctenanthe don’t like to be flooded out, so hold off watering Grey Star until the soil is dry on top.
Oh, and in case you were wondering its pronounced tee-NANTH-ee. You’re welcome.
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!
WE CANNOT SHIP PLANTS OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA!!!
ALL plants shipped OUTSIDE Tasmania are now sent bare root. Do not fear this is the best way to get them all the way to you in the best possible condition.
