The Ctenanthe is a plant that is native to tropical Central and South America. The plant is related to the Calathea, and has the same nice feature that the plant pulls up its leaves in the evening. This means that you can see the nicely striped top of the leaf during the day, and the beautiful purple underside when it gets dark. So don't be alarmed if you hear some rustling in the evening: these are leaves sliding past each other!Care
The plant is easy to care for. Place the plant in a light spot but not in direct sunlight. Keep the soil slightly moist and preferably give small amounts of water, 1 to 2 times a week. Do not let the soil dry out too much.Plant height
The Ctenanthe is supplied with a height of 25-40 centimeters, measured including the pot. The diameter of the pot is 12 centimeters.
