    about this plant

    The Ctenanthe Burle Marxii comes from the tropical regions of Central and South America and is related to the Calathea. Her leaves make this beauty a real eye-catcher. The long, oval leaf has a striped herringbone pattern and is dark green with gray-green. The undersides of the leaves are reddish, which she will show you every night after dark. In the morning she will delight you again with her beautiful leaves!

    This Fishbone prayer plant is a tough plant. She prefers shade and absolutely doesn't like direct sunlight as this will scorch her pretty patterned leaves. She appreciates a humid environment, therefor it is best you help her by misting her daily with a plant sprayer. It is important to keep her soil moist, even in the winter. Of course the Ctenanthe Burle Marxii needs more water during summer as because of the warmth her soil will dry out quicker.

    Significantly smaller than expected, and no grow since its arrival. Let's see if upcoming spring season helps her, but for now I would not repurchase.

    Decided to add this plant to my order on a whim, it caught my eye and I HAD to have it. Let me tell you, this plant can be picky. - Loves humidity and without it brown crispy spots will appear on the leaves. - LOVES water. This guy will throw a whole tantrum if you let the soil get dry or if it begins to compact. The edges of his leaves will curl and it’s as if the plant is hiding his beautiful fishbone design in an act of disobedience. Couple hours after a good water and his leaves will go completely back to normal as if nothing happened. Once you get the hang of figuring out exactly what this plant wants it’s easy peasy. I love taking photos of this plant throughout the day because he loves following the sun around the room and repositioning throughout the day. So cool to be able to see how much the plant has moved since you last took a picture!

    Very good. A faster grower than calatheas, arrived healthy and adapted quickly.

    Definitely my favourite baby plant of my order. The leaves are lovely stands out from the crowd. The roots are well established. Super happy with my purchase.

    This a surprise of my order. I added her in just to see if I like her and she easily won me over. She moves so much! Each day I find her with differently positioned leaves. Quite large for a baby plant too. Looks very healthy and came with no damage at all.

    This plant arrived in great condition although a little dirty from displaced soil, no big deal though! It's a little smaller than the photo but still a great price. Other than the displaced soil, my plant came in perfect condition despite being in the post for a few days in the colder months.

    Loving this little one. It’s such a living plant, since it closes its leafs in the evening. It came in a really good condition. There’s a new leaf showing already.
