Stromanthe sanguinea (sometimes referred to as Tricolor or Triostar Stromanthe), is a plant native to the rain forests of Brazil. This variety of the Stromanthe Plant has beautiful leaves in different shades of white, red, pink, and green. Since a Stromanthe Plant is a relative of the Prayer Plant and a member of the Maranta family, its leaves fold up at night as though praying. Stromanthe Plants produce reddish pink flowers in the spring, but they can’t compete with this plants dazzling leaves.
A Stromanthe Plant is a spectacular looking plant, but challenging to grow, definitely not for beginners.
LIGHT CONDITIONS: Place a Stromanthe Plant in bright indirect light but no direct sun, a north or east facing window is best. This plant can tolerate some shade, but may lose some of its colour as a result.
WATER CONDITIONS: A Stromanthe Plant likes to be kept barely moist at all times. Be careful not to over-water a Stromanthe or the roots rot and the plant dies. In winter, allow the soil of a Stromanthe to dry out a little more, but never completely.
