Selosa 'Grey Star' (Ctenanthe setosa) is part of the Marantaceae family giving her the ability to respond to the circadian rhythmic nastic movement at the onset of darkness. You'll see her long elliptical leaves fold upward as if in intense prayer. The undersides of her leaves are painted in a deep purple giving her a whole different shape and look at night. It's like she's changed into a new dress for the evening and gone to her prayer closet. Give her room to expand to get to 3 feet tall and wide in the right conditions.

About Setosa Grey Star

Yes! She is a prayer plant. In fact, plants belonging to the Marantaceae family include Maranta, Calatheas, and Ctenanthe (which is what Selosa is). All are different types of plant species but related and require the same care. It can be confusing, but we're here to clear your head! Selosa 'Grey Star' reigns with tall stems that sit long greyish-white elliptical leaves. There is an outline of green on the edges and veins with a surprising shade of purple underneath. She's very reverent and prays in the evenings too!

Fun Facts: You'll see a lot ...

You'll see a lot of movement from the Selosa 'Grey Star' as its leaves rise and lower by the time of day it is. When it's nightfall, the leaves raise as if trying to reach the sky, giving you a peek at its purple underside. During the day, they relax and display their unusual striping. Another common name for it is the Prayer Plant, which signifies praying hands at night! Overall, the plant is a symbol of devotion and focus on a schedule. Keep one around to inspire dedication!
