Stromanthe Triostar, one of those star-quality plants that you instantly fall in love with. The striking green-and-white leaves are artistically sprayed with pinkish hues, making it a standout. This plant is not for beginners. Stromanthe triostar can be a joyous and difficult task, but it is well worth the effort.
Stromanthe Triostar Light Conditions
Stromanthe triostar uniquely interacts with the sun. The best situation is medium-filtered light. This plant can't take direct sunlight and will burn easily.

They are most at home near an east-facing window that receives mild morning sunlight. Another good option is a bright northern exposure.
Stromanthes have a strange relationship with light that can confuse their owners. It is common for variegated plants to lose color in low light conditions. Therefore, it makes sense to place them in brighter lighting. However, the Triostar may not respond well in this situation.
Stromanthe Triostar Care Requires Watering
Although they can adapt to different lighting conditions, the plant requires a lot of water maintenance. This is where things can go sour. They like consistency: their soil should be slightly moist but not too dry.
Because their constantly moving leaves don't give any indications that they are thirsty, you'll need to be attentive. You can read my guide on assessing the watering requirements of your plants if you need some help.
Allow the soil to dry for a few hours before watering again. It is a good idea to determine how much water your plants need to survive for at least a week before you start refilling them.
