INDOOR PLANT - Stromanthe Tricolour in 20cm pot
Delightful!! That's about the only word we can use to summarise this absolute show off!
Stromanthe is the name for this group of tropical plants originating from the rain forests of Brazil. They grow and creep along the forest floor where they enjoy the humidity this spot provides. You will love watching those divine dark green leaves, with white variegations and pink undersides, move towards the light. We are sure that this pretty plant will become one or your most treasured in your collections, they are just that beautiful!
The Stromanthe will prefer a well-lit spot with bright, indirect light. Though it can tolerate lower levels of light, the bright variegation will fade. Avoid direct sunlight which can burn the leaves.
Allow the top of 2cm of soil to dry out before re-watering. A full wetting of all the soil frequently during the growing season (less in winter) is best to ensure all the roots can access moisture. As a guide will likely require watering once a week in summer and fortnightly in cooler months.
WE RECOMMENDED PLANTING IN...
This stunner will love the benefits of a 25cm Mr Kitly Self-Watering Pot. If a ceramic pot is more in keeping with your tastes look for a diameter size of 25cm - 30cm to keep this plant happy, the lightweight medium sized Alfie range would look divine (pictured here in Terra colour).
If you'd like us to do the dirty work for you simply request your plant to be potted into your chosen pot and we'll take care of the rest!
*Note: The plant shown is an indication of how healthy and fabulous all of our hand selected plants are! Your plant may not be the exact plant pictured but it will be of the same quality.
