Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar'
Common names: Triostar, Magenta Triostar, Stromanthe Tricolor
A colorful plant native to tropical forests, the Stromanthe Triostar is a gem to add to your plant collection. It's long, graceful leaves are painted with streaks of magenta, green, yellow, and white fanning out from a dense center. This lovely plant can grow up to a couple feet wide and a foot tall, so at full maturity it would make a beautiful floor statement piece. They require a little more care than their Maranta cousins, but the effort is well worth the elegance and beauty this plant brings into your space.
Light: Bright Filtered
Pet Friendly: Yes
Brown leaf-edges mean that your Triostar wants more humidity! These plants are native to the forests of Brazil and will appreciate a good deal of humidity which you can provide with a humidifier, a pebble or tray, or regular misting. Rotate your Triostar regularly so that the leaves grow towards the light evenly throughout the plant.
