Ctenanthe Burle-Marxii

"Ctenanthe 'Amagris' has silvery green leaves that have a delicate dark green herringbone pattern and purple undersides. Though native to Southeastern Brazil, the Amagris originally appeared as a chance mutation of the Fishbone Prayer Plant at a Belgian nursery. Struck by its compact form and simple leaves, they decided to select for the mutation, and the Amagris is now an officially recognized cultivar of the Ctenanthe burle-marxii.
