Description

Belonging to the Marantaceae family he is also related to the Calathea and Prayer plant.  Ctenanthe Lubbersiana has a few aliases,  Bamburanta, Ctenanthe, Never never plant. Being an evergreen perennial he has a soft spot for showing off his beautiful green oval leaves with pale green undersides. If he has settled into his surroundings mid-summer you may get extremely lucky and see his small white or yellow coloured flowers under his leaves. Make sure you check they do not last for long. He prefers bright indirect sunlight, moist and well-drained soil, high to medium humidity and will tolerate a light frost. However, he must avoid any draft and temperatures below 15 degrees for an extended period. Doesn't love the chills.

Our plants are beautifully grown and have well-developed roots. They are hardened, can be planted directly into the planters, and are excellent performing Indoor plants - it’s our plant promise guarantee!

  • Quick Facts
  • What to use me for:  I am best as an Ornamental plant, let me brighten up your office or home.

    I grow to: 90cm high, 120cm wide 

    Where to place me: I love a well-lit area, away from direct sunlight.

  • How to water me

    I prefer to keep my soil evenly moist but never soggy; I dislike being dry and dislike cold or hard water.

    Soil PH
    I will do my best with a soil PH level between 5.5-6.5, you can read more about the importance of PH levels here 

    Potting needs
    I really like a good quality potting mix and will do well in a 170mm pot. 

    Tips and tricks

    Because I rarely need a haircut, simply rake up or pull out any dead leaves that have accumulated. When my leaves curl or have brown edges it's possible that you're giving me too much to drink. When my leaves crisp up and fall off I'm dehydrated. Keep an eye on me as I do not feel comfortable nudie...
