Everything You Need to Know About Caring For Your Triostar Stromanthe
The stromanthe triostar, also known as Stromanthe thalia or Stromanthe sanguinea, is a great way to bring a splash of color to your home. It has vivid pastel stripes and can be used to create a tropical feel. With proper care, these vibrant plants can grow up to 2 to 3 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide at maturity.
Ctenanthe oppenheimiana is a very similar plant, with slightly different characteristics, and less tolerance to cold. It's also known as giant bamburanta or never plant, but it's far more common than the stromanthe triostar.

Best Growing Conditions for Triostar Stromanthe
Your triostar stromanthe should be displayed in an area with indirect, bright light such as an east-facing, or north-facing window. This will enable your plant to flourish while maximizing its color. Triostar stromanthe can be grown in lower light conditions, but they will have less variegation. To ensure even growth, turn the plant once per week. The leaves will eventually grow toward the light source.
How to Care For Your Triostar Stromanthe
Your triostar stromanthe soil should be kept moist but not soggy. Let the soil dry completely before watering again. You may find that the plant needs less water in winter than it does in summer. Check the soil frequently when you bring it home and adjust your watering schedule as the seasons' change.
Triostar stromanthe should be fed with standard houseplant fertilizer, diluted to half strength once per month in spring and summer. Avoid fertilizing the winter when the plant is dormant.
