Ctenanthe oppenheimiana is more commonly known as the Never-never plant. Ctenanthe are in the Marantacae or 'prayer plant' family. They provide a stunning display of leaf movement throughout the day.
This species is native to Brazil. This understory plant has extremely striking, pendant foliage with a gorgeous purple undertone.
Place your Ctenanthe in a shaded or bright spot, but be aware that as an understorey plant they don't like any direct sun. They prefer a warm, humid position to keep they're foliage looking fresh. Keep the medium evenly moist but never allow the pot to dry out all the way. During winter keep your plant away from any cold draughts & radiators.
