  • Botanical Name: Ctenanthe burle-marxii 'Amagris'
  • Common Names: Prayer Plant, Never Never Plant, Fishbone Plant
  • Description: The Ctenanthe burle marxii Amagris is slow growing with pale grey-green, oval leaves and dramatic dark green curving stripes. The leaves are wonderfully offset by a deep purple stem and leaf underside. Ctenanthe Amagris leaves close upwards at night like other prayer-plants. As with the Amabilis it is also commonly referred to as the Never Never Plant and Fishbone Plant.
  • Amagris Ctenanthe is capable of surviving in many different types of soil. But you’ll have to pay attention to whether or not the soil is well-draining.

    Waterlogging can cause several issues for your Amagris Ctenanthe, which is why using a soil mixture that provides the best drainage is necessary. 

  • Water your Amagris Ctenanthe once the soil’s top starts feeling dry. Every time your water your Amagris Ctenanthe, keep adding the water until you see it draining out of the drainage holes.
  • If your Amagris Ctenanthe is suffering from brown leaf tips, then your tap water most likely has high levels of chlorine and fluoride.

  • Amagris Ctenanthe requires bright indirect sunlight to grow well. Whenever you’re planning to grow an Amagris Ctenanthe, make sure to keep the tropical rainforest of Brazil in mind when taking care of it.

    This plant is used to getting long hours of bright indirect sunlight. It’s used to getting indirect sunlight because of the other much taller plants in the forest that provide it with shade.
