Brighten up dull corners of your house with this dramatically coloured Stromanthe. Dark green leaves with white variegations and pink undersides of the leaves.
This plant really does need quite shady conditions with little direct sun.
Keep moist in well drained soil.
Since this plant originates in the warm rain-forests of Brazil, they are best grown indoors. They prefer filtered light and moist well drained soil enriched with plenty of organic matter.
As indoor pot plants in cool climates, these tropicals grow best in humidified rooms or bathrooms, as long as there is bright natural light (but not direct sun). Allow their soil to dry slightly on the surface before watering again.
We recommend the Australian Munash Organics soil food and foliage spray to keep you plants happy and healthy!
