Stromanthe Triostar
Stromanthe sanguinea

You can take the girl out of São Paulo, but you can't take São Paulo out of the girl. Originally from Brazil, Silvia loves high humidity and warm temperatures. Her green, cream and rosy pink-colored leaves are sure to brighten up any indoor space.

Sunlight:Low to bright indirect. Direct sun burns her leaves.

Water:Once a week. Soil can stay slightly moist.

Pets:Great with pets.

Size:SM: ~8" tall and a 4" pot. MD: ~15" tall and a 6" pot.

Gifts:Multi-colored and alive—a better gift than flowers.

Pro-tip: Use filtered water when watering, or let tap water sit for a day prior. This prevents leaf tip burn.
