Ctenanthe burle-marxii ‘Amagris’ with attractive fishbone pattern

Ctenanthe burle-marxii ‘Amagris’ (Fishbone Prayer Plant, Ctenanthe Amagris)

A charming foliage plant that was added to our courtyard in July 2013.

Though its variegated leaves aren’t that dramatic, the dark green fishbone pattern set against a light greyish-green background certainly attracted our attention and curiosity!

The purple-coloured underside of its leaves is an added bonus, to say the least.

We gladly brought a pot of ‘Amagris’ that costs only RM5 home, knowing for sure that these unusual foliage plants with remarkable variegation will compliment a crowd of other green plants that reside at our courtyard.

They thrive well at this location which receives brief sunlight, depending on the planet’s motion around the sun. Air circulation here is rather cool and isn’t as dry as our garden at the front yard.
