Ctenanthe Compact Star

Ctenanthe Compact Star Care Guide


Ctenanthe Compact Star prefers bright, indirect light but can tolerate medium light conditions. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch its leaves and cause them to lose their vibrancy.


Water Ctenanthe Compact Star when the top 1-2 inches of the soil feel dry. Ensure thorough watering, allowing excess water to drain away. Avoid overwatering to prevent root rot.


Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, ideally between 50-60%. Use a humidifier, pebble tray, or regular misting to increase humidity around the plant.


Keep Ctenanthe Compact Star in a warm environment with temperatures between 65-75°F (18-24°C). Avoid cold drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.


Feed Ctenanthe Compact Star with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer diluted to half strength every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Do not fertilize during the winter months.


Ctenanthe Compact Star is non-toxic to pets and humans, making it a safe choice for households with pets and children.

Additional Care Information

Use a well-draining, peat-based potting mix to ensure proper drainage and moisture retention. Rotate the plant occasionally to promote even growth and prevent it from leaning towards the light source.


Leaf Curling: Curling leaves can indicate low humidity or underwatering. Increase humidity levels and adjust your watering routine. Leaf Browning or Yellowing: This can be caused by overwatering, underwatering, or exposure to cold drafts. Check the soil moisture and adjust your care routine accordingly. Brown Leaf Tips: Brown tips can be a sign of dry air, excess fertilizer, or salt buildup in the soil. Increase humidity, flush the soil with water to remove excess salts, and avoid overfertilizing.
