Calathea 'Burle Marx' is part of the Maranta family, native to the rainforests of Brazil, and is also known as Ctenanthe 'Burle Marx' or Fishbone Prayer plant. But not matter what the name it offers stunning foliage just like all of its other family members.
It is a slow-growing plant and may take two seasons to reach its full height.
The leaves grow in fan-like clusters and may reach up to 12″ inches in length.
The leaves are the most interesting feature of this plant. The striped, fishbone pattern is dark green on top of the light, gray-green leaves. The underside of the Ctenanthe Burle-Marxii leaves is often red or grayish.
This plant likes humidity so ensure that it is placed on a pebble tray, water consistently and place in medium to bright indirect light.
Being a member of the Calathea family, it is pet friendly.
