    Say hello to this dazzling member of the prayer plant family–Socialite ‘Trio Star’–her glamorous, variegated leaves adorned in a trio of colors! Although ‘Trio Star’ looks similar to a Calathea, and thrives in the same bright, indirect light & high humidity as a Calathea, ‘Trio Star’ is actually a Stromanthe. For best performance, put her in a spotlight, or maybe just the brightest, indirect light you have, and let her show off her elongated, dramatically-variegated leaves of white, green, and pink. At night, or when the curtain falls, ‘Trio Star’ will fold up her leaves, displaying their reddish-purple undersides.

    Maintenance Notes: 

    Often confused with Calatheas, Stromanthes are actually a different a different Genus. Both plants, however, are in the Prayer Plant Family. Display your Stromanthe in a spot with bright, indirect light, such as an east-facing or north-facing window. This will allow your plant to thrive while maximizing its coloring.

    • For optimal performance, keep your Prayer Plant at 60-85°F (15-29°C). 
    • Prayer Plants perform best in medium to bright levels of indirect light. Avoid placing them next to a window that gets direct sunlight, unless it is early in the morning, or late in the afternoon. Direct midday sun can cause leaf scorch. Bright shade or filtered light is just enough for Prayer Plants
    • Prayer Plants appreciate moderate to high levels of humidity. To keep humidity at around 40%, you may need to position your Prayer Plant near a humidifier or on a pebble tray.
    • Prayer Plants should not be watered with tap water, or excessively hard or treated water. Distilled water or filtered water are better options. These plants are sensitive to impurities and salts in tap water, which can cause leaf edges to burn or leaf spots to form. 
    • Prayer Plants prefer to have moist, but not soggy soil. As such, water when the top inch or so of soil is dry.  If the soil gets too dry, your Prayer Plant may wilt or develop leaf curl–both of which are good indicators to water your plant. If it is very dry, you may need to soak your pot in water until the soil is thoroughly rehydrated. This can take up to half an hour. Once the soil is moist, allow your pot to drain thoroughly, as your Prayer Plant shouldn’t sit in standing water for extended periods of time. 
    • Feed your Prayer Plant once per month at half strength when it is actively growing. Reduce frequency of fertilization in the winter months. If no new leaves are growing, it does not need to be fertilized.
    • Protect furniture when watering & fertilizing.
    • When repotting your Prayer Plant, use an all-purpose potting mix, with additional orchid bark and perlite added, to ensure it has good drainage and plenty of nutrients.
