Stromanthe is a strikingly beautiful houseplant that never fails to catch the eye. It has an exotic look with its dark green leaves that are delightfully variegated with streaks of pink and cream. As if that's not enough, the backsides of the leaves are a lovely shade of pinkish-purple.
Grow stromanthe in a medium or bright spot indoors. The more light it gets, the better the variegation will show. In hot-summer climates, it's helpful to give it a little protection from direct sun in the afternoon hours to prevent sunburn.
Water stromanthe regularly -- when the soil surface just starts to dry. Take care not to let stromanthe dry out.
