Ctenanthe burle-marxii

Ctenanthe ‘Burle Marx’ - Fishbone Prayer Plant (M)


A great addition to a group of indoor plants, the Burle-Marxii aka Fishbone Prayer Plant is known for its distinctive alternating dark markings on light green leaves and burgundy underside. This plant is called a Prayer Plant as its leaves lie flat during the day but fold upwards in the evenings!


Prayer Plants are easy to look after and prefer a shady spot or part shade outside or filtered or medium indirect light indoors. Make sure that soil is well drained and mist periodically with room temperature water. They are best kept next to other plants for moisture grouping or in a humid environment.
