Stromanthe is an absolutely gorgeous prayer plant. The leaves of this plant will have more intense variegation with higher levels of bright, indirect light. You’ll find these genera growing happily on the subfloor of South American rainforests, meaning they enjoy a daily misting or a humidifier running nearby. Be sure to retain an even level of moisture in your potting mix to keep the plant happy and the foliage lush.
Stromathe grown outdoors in North Texas need to be kept in the shade. We do not recommend keeping your plant outside during periods of extreme heat or cold. Regular watering is advised, especially if your region is relatively dry (in comparison to the neo tropics.) Never let your prayer plant become exposed to sub freezing temperatures. When temperatures reach 55 degrees and below, be sure to move your plants inside to a warm & bright environment.
