This stunning plant is called the Ctenanthe Burle Marxii, originating from the lush jungles of the Amazon in South America. Its striking foliage is adorned with vibrant strokes of green reminiscent of a forest, with a contrasting deep burgundy underside. It belongs to the Marantaceae family, renowned as 'Prayer Plants,' which, unlike most plants, imitate human behavior by following the light, with the leaves folding upwards during the night and downwards throughout the day in search of light.

Light: Ctenanthe thrive in bright, indirect light, though you should avoid placing in direct sunlight to prevent leaf discoloration and sunburn. Paling and curling of the leaves can be an indication of too much direct sun. These plants will tolerate low to medium light conditions.

Water: Make sure to keep your plant evenly moist, but not soggy or overwatered. Yellowing of the leaves and stems is a good indicator to pull back on your watering schedule, while curling of the leaves is an indication that your Ctenanthe might need a more frequent drink. 

Humidity: The main trick with Ctenanthe is to maintain a warm, humid environment. We recommend adding a humidifier to your daily plant routine.
