Ctenanthe amagris (S)
The Ctenanthe Amagris is native to South-East Brazil, and is a low growing plant with pale green paddle-shaped leaves that overlap each other, creating a beautiful patterned effect. The underside of its leaves are a contrasting deep purple, which can be seen at dusk when the leaves fold upright. It is a hardy plant and easy to grow, requiring little maintenance. Ctenanthe amagris will love a humid room like the bathroom and in the right conditions it can grow up to 25cm, but it will mostly get wider and fuller with time.
Watering and misting regularly will help if the air humidity is low. Remove the old leaves in order to maintain a tidy plant, however pruning isn't required. Ensure it is kept in the shade within partial sun, just ensure it doesn't dry up, as it loves to remain moist.
Keep soil moist but well drained.
