Ctenanthe setosa

Add to Wishlist

Ctenanthe setosa 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.

Comes in a 90mm pot.

GROWTH - Generally to 40-50cm tall

LIGHT - Bright, indirect light.  Insufficient light will cause leaf colour to become more solid green and with too much light the colour will fade.

WATER - These guys do not like to dry out. Keep the soil evenly moist but never soggy.  Water should be room temperature.  High humidity if preferred.
