Amazing Stromanthe Houseplants
Growing stromanthes gives you super attractive houseplants that can be used as a Christmas gift plant. Stromanthe is a genus of plants native to tropical rainforests. There are 13 species of Stromanthe, though only a few are commonly cultivated. They have striking foliage houseplants in temperate climates. These houseplants are known for their multi-colored leaves, but Triostar plants produce flowers as well. These blooms are pink, like the undersides of the leaves, and are surrounded by small, petal-like orange leaves. They grow in clusters atop tall stems and usually bloom in mid-spring.The Burle Marx variety of Stromanthe is considerably smaller than the Triostar, reaching only one to one and a half feet ( .3 to .45 m) in height and spreading to a foot (.3 m) or so in width. Its smaller, oblong leaves have a pattern of dark green and light green to white. The flowers of Burle Marx plants are white, and can bloom from late spring to early fall.
Like other tropical plants, Stromanthe houseplants needs humidity for optimum growing conditions. Growing them outdoors in tropical or subtropical locations will satisfy this requirement. Indoors, they grow best in rooms that are humidified. The plants may be able to survive a light frost, but they are happier when temperatures don’t drop below 40°F (4.4°C). Dry soil, dry air, and cold weather can all cause the leaves to turn brown. The plant may regrow once the weather turns warmer, however.
