Never Never Plant 'Fishbone'
Botanical Name: Ctenanthe Lubbersiana
Common Name: Never Never Plant
Ctenanthe, a member of the Marantaceae family (cousin to Marantas), have beautifully patterned foliage that can elevate your urban jungle homes. Native to Central and South America.
The cool thing about Ctenanthe is that they have highly photosensitive leaves. Their leaves lay flat in the morning to absorb sunlight and fold up in the evening. They have the similar behavior as the Maranta.

- Sensitive to cold
- Lovers of humidity
- Sensitive to mineralized water (use filtered or distilled)
- Medium to bright (indirect light)
- Water when top 1 inch of soil is dry
Armed with a little knowledge, Never-Never plants are a joy to have!
