Product Information

Anyone can find space for houseplants, and as we spend more time at home it's incredibly important that we can still get up close and personal with plants which have been proved to improve our mental health and wellbeing.

Also known as Fishbone Prayer Plant, Ctenanthe has wonderful oval leaves that can become up to 30cm long and are wonderfully patterned two-tone grey-green on the top, with an underside of rich deep maroon. Perfect for a focal point in a bright spot in your home.

Related to Calathea, Ctenanthe shares its fascinating and unusual habit with leaves that close upwards when light levels fall as if in prayer.

Beautiful to look at, these leafy tropical houseplants also help to clean the air in your home. It has been found that houseplants can actually improve the environment in our homes, clearing the air, removing toxins and adding valuable oxygen to the air that we breathe.

Supplied as a potted plant in a 12cm pot, growing to a height and spread of 75cm (2ft).
