Ctenanthes are known for there shrinking leaves! It features absolutely stunning leaves with a striking patterning that leaves most people checking if they’re even real. Ctenanthe will open their leaves with the morning sun, and close them again at night - you can sometimes even hear them rustling! They don’t grow upwards as much they grow outwards, so be prepared for a wave of new leaves making their way over the sides of the pot!
