4″ Trio Star (Maranta)
The Stromanthe sanguine, or Triostar plant, is a very attractive houseplant. Foliage is a mix of red, white, and green. Triostar can reach 2 to 3 feet in height, and 1 to 2 feet across. It is a relative of the prayer plant (or Maranta leuconeura). Triostar plants are sometimes considered difficult to maintain, but by following the basics of Triostar care, this specimen will grow and thrive year-round.
The Triostar cannot exist in a dry environment, as its native to the Brazilian rain forest. Misting or placing a pebble tray under the plant can help to provide humidity. The greatest asset to providing the needed humidity is to use a room humidifier.
Triostars should be watered with moderate frequency. Soil should remain moist, but the top inch should be dried out before watering again. They need a bright, indirect light, as direct sunlight
