Ctenanthe burle-marxii

These beautiful foliage plants are known as fishbone prayer plants (Ctenanthe burle-marxii) and grow on the forest floor in their native Brazil. They are happy living at room temperature but will appreciate additional air humidity. 

The large oval pale green leaves have interesting dark green patterns to add interest and the leaves are dark purple to red underneath. A true beauty, this gorgeous plant moves throughout the day as all prayer plants do - opening up for a full display during the day and tidying itself up for the night.


Keep it in the limelight but stay away from direct sunlight that can harm it's pretty leaves. It likes it warm and tropical and always appreciates a good misting.


  • Live plant in houseplant soil in a plastic pot
  • Height of the plants varies but is no less than 20 cm.
  • The pot diameter is 8 cm
