    • Grown, packaged and shipped exclusively by Wekiva Foliage. Ctenanthe (pronounced te-NANTH-ee) plants are famous for their striking variegated foliage, and the cultivar Ctenanthe setosa 'Grey Star' is no exception. It is a clump-forming plant with long oblong leaves, grey with darker green veins.
    • Although it can produce white blooms when grown indoors, 'Grey Star' rarely flowers—this plant is all about the dramatic foliage. This evergreen, clump-forming, herbaceous perennial has large, thick leaves that feature dark green and silvery-gray stripes on the top.
    • The undersides are also beautiful with their distinctive purple or maroon shades. Although it can be grown as a garden plant in zones 10 to 11, in most regions Ctananthe plants are usually grown as houseplants. 'Grey Star' is a slow-growing plant that is usually planted in late spring or early summer when used as a garden plant.
    • Too much direct sunlight can result in fading colors on the leaves of Ctenanthe setosa 'Grey Star'. Provide the plant with a sheltered spot that gets bright but indirect sunlight to ensure the most dramatic foliage display. Too much shade can also result in diminished variegation.
    • This houseplant requires a well-drained potting mix with a high percentage of peat moss mixed to ensure the right combination of drainage and moisture retention. It also helps to retain good nutrients, and this is important for a plant that has such large and colorful foliage.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
