Scientific Name: Ctenanthe burle-marxii amagris
Our Cthenathe Amagris come in a 14cm Nursery Pot.
Cthenathe Amagris is part of a Cthenanthe genus of some 15 plants which are related to the Prayer Plant and Calathea plants, much appreciated for their attractively patterned and colourful foliage.
The outcome of a chance mutation in a Belgian lab, the mutation was valued for its delicate colour, pattern and densely grown foliage. Amagris has now been included as its own cultivar.
This plant has the perfect ration of impact to input: a great beginner plant with very care-easy characteristics.
Amargis will be happy in a warm spot, with high humidity and not too much light, such as a bathroom. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not waterlogged, and enjoy the daily spectacle as Amargis flips up its foliage to sleep.
Follow these instructions to keep your Cthenathe Amagris healthy and happy.
Water: Keep soil evenly moist but not waterlogged.
Light: Prefers Medium light. Avoid direct sunlight as this will singe the leaves.
Humidity: Prefers high humidity and will appreciate misting.
Feeding: Dilute balanced fertiliser once a month during the growing season (Spring / Summer).
Our Cthenathe Amagris comes in a nursery pot with 15cm diameter and fits best with decorative pots that have a diameter of 15cm. You can shop our pot collection here: Pot and Planter Collection
