The Ctenanthe Amagris  has gorgeous, round foliage with a distinctive grey-green top and a purple underbelly. Related to the calathea family, they are often called "prayer plants" because their circadian rhythm prompts them to raise and lower their leaves from day to night (called nyctinasty).


Note: Sizes are indicative of pot size, not plant size. For example: 4" pot means that the plant will come in a 4" tall by 4" wide plastic nursery pot.
