  • Scientific Name: Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar'
  • Common Names: Triostar, Stromanthe Tricolor, Tricolor Prayer Plant
  • Native Region: Native to the rainforests of Brazil.

Light Requirements: Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar' prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate lower light conditions but will thrive best in bright, filtered light. Avoid direct sunlight, which can scorch the leaves and fade their vibrant colors.

Watering Needs: Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry. Ensure proper drainage to prevent root rot. Reduce watering frequency in the winter months when the plant's growth slows.

Soil Preference: Use a well-draining potting mix rich in organic matter. A mix containing peat moss, perlite, and pine bark works well to provide the necessary drainage and aeration.

How to Fertilize: Fertilize during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble houseplant fertilizer. Apply fertilizer at half-strength every 4-6 weeks. Reduce feeding in the fall and winter when the plant's growth slows.

Hardiness Zone: Typically grown indoors or as a container plant in zones 10-11. It is not frost-tolerant and should be protected from temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

Pet Safety: Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar' is non-toxic to cats and dogs, making it a safe choice for households with pets.

Additional Care Tips: Remove any yellow or damaged leaves to encourage new growth and maintain the plant’s appearance. Repot every 1-2 years or when the plant becomes root-bound, typically in the spring. Use a pot one size larger to give the roots room to grow.
