The Ctenanthe, sometimes known as the 'never-never plant' has impressive green striped, shrubby leaves with a dark red underside that would be a perfectly unique accessory for any modern-design scheme. This simple display has the right amount of contrasting colour to catch the eye and never get old. Standing on slightly blushing, thick stems this plant is a great look for a dining room or formal area.

How to grow a Ctenanthe

Ctenanthe plants love greenhouse-like conditions with plenty of airflow. You should set your plant near a window where it will receive bright, but indirect sunlight. Never put your plant in direct sunlight or you risk scorching the leaves. If light levels are too low the plant will go dormant and stop growing

What soil should I plant my Ctenanthe in?

Ctenanthe prefers acidic soil. Using a peat-based potting mix with a pH of 55 to 60 is a great option, but you can also mix two parts sphagnums to one part loamy soil for a more homemade option. Make sure you keep the soil well-draining, so you don't overwater your plant.

How do you water a Ctenanthe?

Water frequently during the spring and summer, allowing the soil to dry between waterings. Do not let water sit on the leaves or they may develop fungal problems. If the leaves begin to turn yellow the leaves will begin turning yellow. Reduce the frequency of watering in the winter, this allows the plant to go dormant and be ready for increased growth come the spring.
