Ctenanthe setosa 'Green Flag' - Never Never Plant

Sprouts of Bristol
Checking local availability

We're going to be honest - at Sprouts HQ we struggle with saying the scientific name of this plant. Luckily we 'never never' (geddit?) have to say it as it's common name is nice and easy! It's also known as a golden mosaic which is also nice and simple!

These relatives of the calathea have fabulous lemon and lime coloured leaves that are sure to brighten up any room. Hailing from Brasil it's seemingly patriotic and has taken some influence from its homelands flag!


  • Mist regularly 
  • Likes bright, indirect light
  • Use rain or distilled water
  • Keep the soil constantly moist but make sure it has good drainage 
  • Dust the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth
  • Can benefit from fertiliser in the spring/summer months
  • Pet safe
