Stomanthe sanguinea “Tricolor” is a perennial plant native to the rainforests of Brazil. They are a tropical plant that thrives in warm humid conditions indoors above 60 degrees and outdoors in zones that stay above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. They prefer bright indirect light away from direct sunlight whenever possible and they can handle short periods in low light conditions. During dryer cooler temperatures they should be misted and kept over a small tray of water filled with pebbles so that their roots do not sit in the water. Water when the top inch of soil is dry but do not overwater. During the growing season feed with a little bit of weak liquid fertilizer. When potting up your Stromanthe you need to use a loose potting medium that retains moisture but drains well. Shipping and handling can be very tough on live plants so please be sure to open and check your plant right away. Mist the foliage and check the soil for moisture. Our plant team gives each plant a drink before they are individually shipped and wrapped so they may not need to be watered right away. Overwatering is one of the most common causes of the decline in indoor plants. We are unable to ship this plant to California due to restrictions by the California Department of Agriculture. Please be aware that if your pet is a plant chewer this plant is considered pet safe and not toxic. There are no other authorized sellers of American Plant Exchange plants.
