Ctenanthe burle-marxii is a compact houseplant that makes a bold tropical statement. Its bright green leaves are striped with alternating lance-shaped bands, and have deep purple undersides and stems.
Ctenanthe burle-marxii is nicknamed the "Fishbone Prayer Plant" due to the unique leaf pattern.
It is a low maintenance plant, great for beginners.
Keep away from heating vents and air conditioners as this can dry out the foliage and cause it to brown at the edges. Mist periodically.
Inside, it will be happy with bright, indirect light. Keep out of full sun.
Through the warmer months it will need to be watered quite frequently - at least once a week.
In winter, allow your kokedama to fully dry out before watering. This can roughly be every 1-2 weeks.
The general rule is thumb is to submerge your kokedama ball only when it feels light-weight.
Add a little bit of diluted soluble fertiliser to watering around once a month in summer.
HOW TO WATER
Fully submerge your kokedama in a bowl, sink or bucket. You may need to hold it under for a moment. Allow to soak for 10-15 minutes until kokedama feels heavy and full.
Next you will need to squeeze the kokedama gently to remove any excess water. Press the sides gently between the palms of your hands and towards the base of the kokedama. Doing this will mean that your kokedama is not waterlogged and it will help to prolong the life of the moss and the twine as these are biodegradable.
We make each Kokedama to order, using the highest quality plants, soil, moss and twine. It will be packed with care instructions in a gift box. Extra twine will also be included to provide you with the option of hanging your kokedama.
Ball diameter is approximately 12-15cm
