Plant Features
The Sweet Dreams™ Exotica Ctenanthe, a member of the Marantaceae family, is a captivating houseplant known for its striking foliage. This variety of Ctenanthe is admired for its large, elongated leaves, which display a beautiful pattern of deep green and pale green stripes. The undersides of the leaves are often a rich purple or burgundy, adding an extra layer of visual interest. The plant's leaves fold up at night, a characteristic feature of many plants in this family, which adds to its charm. The Sweet Dreams™ Exotica is a perfect choice for adding a tropical and lush feel to indoor spaces.

Caring for the Sweet Dreams™ Exotica Ctenanthe requires some specific attention. Browning leaf edges or tips can indicate low humidity or inconsistent watering. Yellowing leaves may suggest overwatering or poor drainage. If the plant is not receiving enough light, it may become leggy, and the vibrant coloration of the leaves might fade. Direct sunlight should be avoided as it can scorch the leaves. This plant thrives in high humidity, so regular misting, a pebble tray, or a humidifier can be beneficial. It's also important to check for pests such as spider mites.
