Although the Calathea family is beautiful, they are not the easiest. Similarly, the Calathea Stromanthe Triostar is not an easy houseplant. Well, you can’t have everything.
The plant comes from the tropical jungle of South America. Here the plant hides under large plants and trees. Something she also likes to do in your living room! So don’t put the Calathea in front of a window. You are doing her a favour by placing it in the half shade. A dark corner or bathroom is a favourite.
Water the Calathea Stromanthe Triostar once a week so that her potting soil is always slightly moist. You can also pamper the Calathea for daily misting. This ensures high humidity. And that makes the Calathea very happy!
