The Ctenanthe setosa is an evergreen perennial, native to Central and South America (primarily Brazil) and these species are commonly called Silver Star or Grey Star. They are grown for their attractive foliage. The Silver has elongated, rectangular shaped greyish leaves with a striking striped pattern on the top side of the leaf and a beautiful purple on the underside. The leaves grow atop tall, slender red stems. They are a fantastic plant because of their low maintenance requirements and the mature plants are excellent performers. Ensure there is good filtered light for this beauty. They do best in well-draining soil. Water when the top layer so soil starts to dry. Remember to adjust the watering for the different seasons.
100mm pot - Brand new from the nursery, these cuties will grow big and strong in no time (second photo is of the plants available). Photo is only for reference and the plant should be a similar size and maturity as the plant in the photo.
300mm pot - This girl is a MONSTER and you'll need a pretty large space for her, she's as wide as she is tall. In all my time buying Ctenanthe's, I've never found one as impressive as she is (third photo is of the actual plant).
