ABOUT ME

Hi, I'm Ctenanthe "Compact Star". I'm very closely related to the Calathea, Maranta and Stromanthe groups. My outstanding feature are my silver leaves with lovely bold, dark grey-green, herring-bone striped pattern and purple undersides. I'm a low grower who tends to spread out rather than grow vertical. My common name of "prayer plant" comes from my curious habit of folding and raising my leaves of a night. I'm also know for my air-purifying qualities.

 

DETAILS

I'm in a 17cm pot and I’m 70cm in height.

 

LIKES

Love warmth in winter, minimum 10°C please. I love humidity too so try and recreate this for me.

 

DISLIKES

I hate direct sun and cold draughts. Keep me in a shady spot and away from any doors or windows.

 

LOOKING AFTER ME

I can be quite easy to care for if you keep an eye on me. I like average warmth and partial shade. Keep my compost moist at all times but reduce watering in winter. I prefer soft, tepid water please. Put me on a watered pebbled tray or mist my leaves regularly to recreate the humidity levels I love.

 

LIVING WITH PETS AND CHILDREN

I’m safe for pets :)
