Fishbone Prayer Plant

| /

Name: Ctenanthe burle-marxii

AKA: Calathea burle marx, Calathea fishbone

Why we love it: This striking houseplant gets the nickname ‘Fishbone Prayer Plant’ from its unique leaf markings. This and other prayer plants move throughout the day. Their leaves fold upwards in the evenings.

Light: Moderate to bright indirect light.

Water: Let soil dry slightly between waterings. This plant loves additional humidity so a humidifier, careful misting, or a pebble tray is appreciated.

Pet Friendly? Yes, this plant is pet friendly.

Plants are sold in their nursery pots. Ceramic pots and baskets are sold separately.
