Ctenanthe burle marxii, also known as the Fishbone Prayer Plant, is a tropical houseplant with stunning foliage. Its leaves are dark green with white markings and purple undersides. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Ctenanthe burle marxii prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but its colors will be less vibrant. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Ctenanthe burle marxii likes to stay slightly moist, but be careful not to overwater it, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Ctenanthe burle marxii likes high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-75°F (15-24°C).

  5. Soil: Ctenanthe burle marxii prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.

  8. Propagation: Ctenanthe burle marxii can be propagated by division. Carefully separate the plant into two or more sections, making sure each section has roots and leaves, and plant them in separate pots.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Ctenanthe burle marxii is relatively pest-free, but watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Ctenanthe burle marxii is a relatively low-maintenance plant that can add a tropical touch to any room with its stunning foliage.
