- Light: Stromanthe are ground cover plants from the tropical forests of Brazil so these guys thrive in a warm position with medium filtered to soft light. If the leaves appear to be fading or losing their patterning and colour you may have them in too bright a position – move them to somewhere a little more sheltered. Keep them away from heating/cooling units as they are very sensitive to cold or hot drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations.
- Water Guide: It’s important to keep up a regular watering routine. In summer you want to keep the soil moist but not soggy. To monitor this, you can use your finger to poke into the top 5 cm of potting mix and feel the soil moisture level before watering. If it feels particularly wet, let it dry out for longer.
- Humidity: Stromanthe thrive in HIGH humidity environments
- Fertiliser: Feed with liquid fertiliser fortnightly over the warm, growing period and not at all over the cooler winter months.

Scientific Name: Stromanthe
Stromanthe Tricolour comes in a 15cm Nursery Pot.
If the pot size allows it, your ‘tricolour’ will grow into a lush, full house plant that will continue to delight. Find a nice brightly lit spot at a level that the foliage can be appreciated from above. A high humidity area, such as your bathroom or kitchen would be ideal if you don’t want to mist it often.
This low maintenance, ornamental plant does well in medium to bright light conditions and prefers warmer temperatures, so avoid cool corners or chilly drafts.
