Scientific Name: Stromanthe sanguine 'triostar'
Synonym: Calathea Triostar

  • Funky¬†blend of cream, purple and greens
  • Medium-sized plant, but bushy and full
  • Likes high humidity and bright light
  • Plant Level: Intermediate

Our Triostars come in 14cm Nursery Pots.

The funky foliage of this disco dancer will truly delight: white, green, pink and red colouration on the surface, and maroon shading on the underleaf, which shines through when light hits the plant, giving it a whole new dimension.

And it's a mover too: related to the Prayer Plant Family, The Triostar houseplant likes to show its moves on a daily basis - flapping up its leaves at bedtime, only to flip open again once the sun is out.

As a houseplant, the Triostar likes to be reminded of its native Brazilian rainforest home - high humidity and medium to bright light, as it is a ground-level; grower. 

Pair this beauty with a simplistic planter in shades of pink and white to allow its foliage to be the focal point. They make for fabulous bathroom or kitchen accent pieces or the ideal tabletop display if kept happy.

Please note: These Plants are not known to be toxic.

Follow these instructions to keep your Triostar healthy and happy.

Water: Keep soil evenly moist, allowing the top to dry out slightly between watering 
Light: Medium to Bright indirect Light
Humidity: Loves high humidity conditions, and should be placed on a pebble tray.
Fertilize: Balanced Liquid Fertilizer, Spring through Summer, every 2 week
