Ctenanthe 'Amagris'

$ 28.00

Ctenanthe 'Amagris' has silvery green leaves that have a delicate dark green herringbone pattern and purple undersides. Though native to Southeastern Brazil, the Amagris originally appeared as a chance mutation of the Fishbone Prayer Plant at a Belgian nursery. Struck by its compact form and simple leaves, they decided to select for the mutation, and the Amagris is now an officially recognized cultivar of the Ctenanthe burle-marxii! Like the parent plant, the Ctenanthe 'Amagris' has a delightfully compact growth form and a habit of raising its leaves at night and lowering them during the day, earning it a place amongst the "prayer plants."

Ctenanthe 'Amagris' is a low maintenance plant, great for beginners. Place in medium to bright indirect light and water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry. Mist periodically.

Ships in a 6" plastic nursery pot. Leaves measure 1-2" long and about 1" wide. Each specimen has multiple clumps, eventually growing to about 10-16". Some natural variation in size and appearance may occur.

Hand Thrown Ceramic Planter sold separately. Includes detailed care instructions.
