Stromanthe - Triostar


Stromanthe is a strikingly beautiful houseplant that never fails to catch the eye. It has an exotic look with its dark green leaves that are delightfully variegated with streaks of pink and cream. The backsides of the leaves are a lovely shade of pinkish-purple. Triostar folds up its leaves at night, then unfurls them in the morning, which is a sight to behold. The care involved in looking after the Triostar is very minimal, largely due to the fact that this plant can withstand neglect better than most other colourful indoor plants. Watering the plant two or 3 times a month would suffice, but don’t panic if you forget every now and then as the plant will cope just fine.

Partial Sun: Plants that like this type of light are mostly the type of plants that grow on the forest floor, where they are somewhat protected against direct sunlight during some hours of the day. This is also a very normal light situation for many windows, usually with a west- or east- facing window with around 4 hours of direct light each day. This could also be a spot further away from a very sunny window.
