Overview

Stromanthe, like other plants from the Marantaceae family, are native to Brazil, growing in scrubland and clearings. As its name ‘Triostar’ suggests, there is a trio of colours present in the foliage that is heavily variegated, from red to pink and cream to green while the abaxial (under) side is a deep red.

With the right care, the ‘Triostar’ can reach 2 to 3 feet in height and 1 to 2 feet across, with the foliage reaching lengths of up to 50cm! Similarly to the prayer plant, this plant lifts its leaves at night, known as nyctinasty.

Quick Care Guide

Care Difficulty: This plant has moderate care needs.

Light requirements: Stromanthe sanguinea ‘Triostar’ prefers bright indirect light but can tolerate partial shade. Keep out of direct sunlight as this will scorch the leaves.

Watering: Water when the top 1-2 inches of soil are dry. Keep soil moist but not waterlogged, overwatering this plant can cause root rot. Try using room-temperature water so as not to shock the plant.

Humidity: Stromanthe’s love humidity and it is vital to keep their foliage looking beautiful. Increase the humidity by grouping plants together, using a humidifier, misting or placing them in a kitchen or bathroom, where humidity is higher.

Toxicity: Non-toxic to humans and pets.

Feeding: Apply a liquid fertiliser once a month during spring and summer (growing season) but reduce it in winter. Follow the instructions on the fertiliser packaging for the dilution ratio.

Repotting: Likes to be repotted every one to two years or when it has outgrown its current container. Size up one to two inches bigger than its current container and make sure the pot has adequate drainage holes.
