Can be a little picky, but the foliage is beautiful and she’s always putting out new leaves. I find her less of a diva than other Calathea.

Sometimes you’ll read that these guys are hard to care for, or that they’re picky… but I haven’t found that at all! My triostar is super forgiving and is always looking amazing. You can do it!

Stromanthe Triostar is an easy going plant with leaves that look like they’re beautifully painted. I keep soil moist but let top inch or so of soil dry between watering. Placed near northwest window and in a room with a Levoit humidifier.

Absolutely love the gorgeous colors of this plant. As well as the opening & closing since it’s in the prayer plant family!

One of the prettiest plants I own. The only specific/extra care it needs is a good amount of humidity.

Picky plant, it likes distilled or rain water if you want to avoid leaves browning. Make sure to properly prune this plant and remove dead leaves. Likes high humidity, a couple hours of good, bright sun, and water when the top 4 inches are dry :)

This plant loves the sun. Since putting near the sun it’s started turning out more pink. It’s a tricolor plant cream, green and pink or red. I turn it a quarter turn daily to have the pink color on all sides, and to keep it straight up.

Gorgeous coloring and puts out new leaves constantly. Demanding of high humidity or all the tips of her leaves will be just a little bit crispy. 😒

I love this plant. I love the colors and the shape. I love that it opens to the sun and pulls in at night. I love that it puts up with my watering schedule and it is perfectly content in my busy house.

I water it when the soil is dry and it pushed out new growth when it's happy. It's one of my favorites.

They need to be watered with distilled water as they’re sensitive to minerals. I also noticed that mine doesn’t like as much light as the unvariegated stromanthe that I have

This plant is beautiful. Amazing how leaves fold up a bit at night. I have heard these can be difficult to grow, so far I’ve been lucky and it likes the environment.
