The Stromanthe (Stromanthe sanguine 'Triostar') colorful foliage gets a lot of attention from the pinks, reds, green and cream-colored markings. The elongated leaf blades covet high humidity and bright, indirect light indoors and out. If outdoors in full shade, they revert to solid green leaves. Outdoors, this plant will attract hummingbirds and bees. This plant grows from rhizomes and, in the right conditions, can reach 3-4 feet tall.

About Calathea Stromanthe Triostar

This dramatic multi-colored herbaceous perennial is part of the Marantaceae family ( Prayer plant) mimicing the nyctinasty or the diurnal response of raising and lowering their leaves due to light exposure. This one will give you something to talk about! Interestingly, one theory of botanists is it adapts in this movement to capture water on its leaves during the day and retain the moisture during the evening hours instead of evaporating.

Care Level: High Maintenance

Though fussy because it needs lots of TLC (moisture and high humidity) it makes it all worth it with the colorful painted leaves it displays.

Pet Friendly: Yes

Safe for pets

Fun Facts

This dramatic multi-colored herbaceous perennial is part of the Marantaceae family ( Prayer plant), mimicking the nyctinasty or the diurnal response of raising and lowering their leaves due to light exposure. This one will give you something to talk about! Interestingly, one theory botanists believe is it adapts in this movement to capture water on its leaves during the day and retain the moisture during the evening hours instead of evaporating. Six to twelve-inch long leaves arise on leafstalks from the center of the plant. The Stromanthe sanguinea ''Triostar' survives by adapting the leaf-blade facing or away from the sun. An upward folding of the leaves occurs at night, making the rosy pink bottom side more prominent. As the sun rises in the morning, the leaves will face the east to absorb the morning light. As more intense sunlight during the day develops, they shift to a more elevated position, so less of the leaf is displayed to protect itself.
