Good morning!

I'm helping someone identify this houseplant, and I figured that this would be an easy one
for you GardenWebbers! ;-) At a glance, I thought it looked like a Dieffenbachia.....

Thank you very much!

Josh, not 100% certain, but it looks like Ctenanthe.

Ctenanthe is in the Marantaceae Family, closely related to Calathea and Stromanthe.

How long are leaves? Toni

RE: Ctenanthe

Josh, check Ctenanthe lubbersiana and C. lubbersiana.

Here's mine.

Perfect! Thanks very much, Toni!
I appreciate the quick identification! I thought you might have one in your collection :-)
