Ctenanthe oppenheimiana Tricolour

Description

The highly decorated foliage of the Ctenanthe oppenheimiana Tricolour sets itself apart from his silver and green cousin the Ctenanthe Oppenheimiana. Also know as the never never plants or prayer plants, the Tricolor's dark green leaves are marked with cream stripes and wine-red undersides.

Oppenheimiana is an easy grower that enjoys the shade. Pop one on your office desk, bathroom window sill, coffee table, fireplace, dining table, kids’ rooms – she loves it anywhere she can hide from direct light.

If you're putting this babe outside, oppenheimiana creates excellent ground cover in shady gardens (make sure she's sheltered from that sun!) – such as mass planted under trees.

Ctenanthe don’t like to have wet feet, so hold off watering your Tricolour 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.

Quick Facts:

  • What to use me for: I'll enjoy every room in your house or rock as a ground cover in a shady garden
  • I grow to: I’ll reach 90cms by 120cms
  • Where to place me: I live a shady life, no direct sun please
  • How far to space me:  Give me 90cms of elbow room
  • Soil Conditions: I like to dry out a bit before you water me, and need well-drained soil 

Our plants are beautifully grown, mature tube stock with well-developed roots. They are guaranteed sun-hardened, can be planted directly into the ground and are excellent performers for your garden.

We carefully package your plants into a customised box to ensure safe transport, healthy plants and delivery to your door
