Never Never 'Golden Mosaic'

English name:

Never Never 'Golden Mosaic'

Latin name:

Ctenanthe lubbersiana 'Golden Mosaic'

About me:

My main feature are my distinct green and lime mottled leaves, which grow on delicate bamboo-like stems. I also go by the common name Bamburanta.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from tropical regions of Brazil.

Height/Growth

I can grow to a height of about 60cm.

Light

I like bright indirect light - if I'm in too shady a spot, my leaves will be less variegated.

Water

Keep my soil evenly moist but never soggy. I don't like to dry out, and don't like cold or hard water.

Temperature

I'm more than happy living in normal room temperatures of between 16-24 degrees C.

Feeding

Fertilise me once a month in spring and summer and every 2 months during autumn and winter.

Grooming

I'm easy, just cut off any dead leaves.

Care

I like humidity so please mist me and place me near other plants or on a pebble tray with water.

Toxicity

Although I'm often listed as non-toxic, I can cause individual allergic reactions.

Fact

I am often confused with my cousin the Calathea. We both belong to the Marantaceae family but I have more elongated oblong leaves.
