Ctenanthe burle-marxii - Set of 2 - Houseplants
|Height (incl. pot)||± 25 cm|
|Pot size||12 cm|
The Ctenanthe is a plant native to tropical Central and South America. The plant is closely related to the Calathea and has the same nice property of pulling up its leaves at night. This means that during the day the beautiful striped top of the leaf can be seen, and at night the beautiful purple underside. So don't be alarmed if you hear some rustling at night: these are leaves that are sliding past each other!
The Ctenanthe Burle Marxii is easy to care for. Place the plant in a light spot but not in direct sunlight. Keep the soil slightly moist and preferably give small amounts of water once or twice a week. Do not let the soil dry out too much. Try to keep the location of the Ctenanthe the same as much as possible. The plant is quite sensitive to shifting. When you take good care of the plant, it can produce a huge number of new leaves! Another advantage of the Ctenanthe is that it is not poisonous to pets or children.
The plants have a height of 25 to 40 cm on delivery (measured incl. Pot). The plants are supplied in pots with a diameter/diameter of 12 cm.
