8.99 “Price excl. VAT: 7.92

Ctenanthe burle-marxii is a compact houseplant that makes a bold tropical statement. Its bright green leaves are striped with alternating lance-shaped bands, and have deep purple undersides and stems. Ctenanthe (along with their close relatives Calatheas and Marantas) are commonly called “Prayer Plants” because their leaves lie flat by day, but fold upwards in the evenings. Ctenanthe burle-marxii is nicknamed the “Fishbone Prayer Plant” due to the unique leaf pattern.
