The Stromanthe Stripestar have pretty foliage and a great overall appearance. They have bold pointed leaves which are dark green with a deep purple underside. They are from the prayer plant family, so they follow the sun. They open its leaves in the morning and closes them at night. Their leaves rise revealing more of the underside.
Where do I come from?
I am native to Brazil.
They prefer bright indirect light to partial shade, with no prolonged exposure to direct sun.
They need to be watered regularly and don’t like to dry out between waterings, so keep soil slightly moist.
They love humidity so place it in a watered pebbled tray or place containers of water around your plants which can increase the moisture in the air. It will also benefit from regular misting.
The bathroom can also be a great spot.
Am I Pet Friendly?
For any pet parents out there - this houseplant is non-toxic.
