GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Ctenanthe burle-marxii 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.
  • Ctenanthe burle-marxii is nicknamed the "Fishbone Prayer Plant" due to the unique leaf pattern. 

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • Ctenanthe Burle-Marxii requires moist, fertile soil with good drainage.
  • Use a mixture of regular potting soil with some peat moss and a little sand.
  • If you move the fishbone prayer plant indoors during the winter, consider placing it in a large pot, instead of growing in the ground.
  • It makes moving the plant easier and reduces stress on the roots.
  • Its growth rate makes repotting recommended every two years, as the roots can start to crowd out the pot.
  • This is also the perfect time to divide and propagate the plant.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • Add liquid fertilizer during the summer.
  • Feed the plant once every two weeks to supply it with extra nutrients.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Medium to bright, indirect light.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry.
