Stromanth Triostar, aka Stromanthe sanguinea 'Tricolor', is native to the rain forests of Brazil. It is a stunning tropical herbaceous perennial in the maranta or prayer plant family (Marantaceae) with dramatic, multicoloured leaves. Along with its vibrant leaves, you will love watching the leaves of Triostar Stromanthe move towards the light—literally reaching for the stars as the light fades.

The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.

As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.

Pro tips

The more indirect light the plant receives, the more variegation you will see on the leaves. Never expose it to prolonged direct sunlight, as you will see burn spots on the leaves, but a couple of hours of morning sun or late afternoon sun will be just fine. The leaves will turn brown and crispy when the air is too dry.

Care Guide

How to take care of Stromanthe Triostar

They should not be in a position to see the sun directly, although early morning or late evening sun is fine. Filtered sunlight through a sheer curtain is best and most homes are comprised primarily of indirect sunlight. The best spot for them is where they do not see the sun during the majority of the day but still get bright, indirect light.

They will do well in medium light but will grow faster with brighter light. A good medium-light place in your home would be in the middle of a room that has a regular size window. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.

They need to be watered when the top half of the soil is dry to the touch. That usually takes about 1 week in an average home environment. It will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions, but it's always safer to underwater or give the soil a check before you water again. Expect to water more often in brighter light and less often in lower light.

They like a high humidity environment, give them a mist daily or as often as possible. Alternatively, you can put them around a humidifier. Although they won't die if they don't receive enough humidity, their leaves may have some dry, crunchy, or yellow edges.

You can feel comfortable having this plant around your home in the potential case where your pet feels like nibbling on it. However, we typically recommend keeping your pets from eating any of your houseplants.
