Ctenanthe are related to Maranta, Calathea and Stromanthe. All are known for their extraordinary decorative foliage and distinctive red under leaves, they are commonly called as Prayer Plants due to the way the leaves fold upwards and downwards in a prayer-like fashion with the changing light of the day.
Light: they'll do well in low light, but they prefer to be in medium indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight as this will fade the plant’s color and burn the leaves.
Water: Water when the top inch of soil is dry.
Temperature: Household temperatures above 18°C don't put them near draughty doors or windows during the winter months
Humidity: Prayer plants love humidity, placing them on top of a tray filled with pebbles and water or grouping them together can help.
Feed: Use a half strength solution of liquid fertiliser during the growing seasonSize: Pot diameter x overall height 17cm x 80cm
Choose a cover pot of 19cm+ diameter
