BloomBox Club Plant Care Hub
(aka Ctenanthe oppenheimiana ‘Amagris’)
I am native to South Eastern Brazil.
I have beautiful grey-green rubbery leaves, with a striking fishbone pattern. The undersides of my leaves are a deep purple.
I will only reach about 30cm high but I can spread much wider.
I like dappled light, and humid conditions. Don't let my soil become waterlogged and mist me occasionally.
I will flower intermittently during the year in ideal growing conditions.
Trim off spent flower stalks and shabby leaves.
I am a long lasting and vigorous plant.
Give me a foliage fertiliser about once a month during the Spring and Summer months.
I am a chance mutation of Ctenanthe burle-marxii, cultivated in a Belgium tissue culture laboratory.
