Ctenanthe amagris

Amagris is a low growing ctenanthe with typical silvery-green foliage and purple undersides BUT check out the thin green herringbone pattern. It’s pure understated chic for a modern home.

Amagris will only reach around 30cms tall which makes him a great choice for surfaces with pictures or mirrors above them or as a table centrepiece.

Ctenanthe are easy growing plants that enjoy the shade. Pop one on your office desk, bathroom window sill, coffee table, fireplace, dining table, kids’ rooms – they love it anywhere hidden from blazing direct light.

Outside, Amagris creates excellent ground cover or understorey planting in shady gardens that are sheltered from the sun – such as mass planted under trees.

Ctenanthe like to dry out a bit before having a drink, so hold off watering until the soil is dry on top. Learn how to care for your indoor plants via our blog 'The quick start guide: Indoor plants'.

Oh, and in case you were wondering its pronounced tee-NANTH-ee. You’re welcome.
