Ctenanthe burle-marxii was first cultivated by artist and plantsman Roberto Burl Marx in Brazil. It shares many traits of its kin, Marantas and Calatheas. Handsome oval leaves in sage green with a sateen finish have offset pairs of deep green slashes. With a compact, full shape, the plant will top out at around 12" overall. As a prayer plant, the rustling leaves will rise up at night as if in prayer, showing the soft burgundy glow of their undersides. Tiny white flowers on short stalks will appear in spring.
