Our Cthenanthe Oppenheimer come in a 14cm Nursery Pot. 

  • Interesting foliage with high fascination value
  • Grows nice and full

These glorious bushy, evergreen plants are part of the Marantaceae family, which includes such popular luminaries as the Calathea and Maranta plants.

Just as their close relatives, Ctenanthes also have dashing foliage, and are care easy and very "agile", enjoying a thorough leaf-workout throughout the day, as they move their foliage in response to light and air movement.

Also called the Never Never Plant, possibly because of their reluctance to flower as an indoor plant. But do yourself a factor, google for a flowering one.

Enjoy its uniquely patterned green-red-white leaf colouring. Place in a medium to brightly lit spot, with relatively high humidity. Water regularly to keep the soil evenly moist.



Follow these instructions to keep your Ctenanthe Oppenheimer healthy and happy.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist and do not let it dry out. Be careful however not to overwater. 
Light: Medium indirect Light
Humidity: Medium to High Humidity is important, mist regularly
