The Dirt

Native to Brazil. Triostar is a relative to Calathea’s. The leaves fold up at night since in their natural habitat this would help them store raindrops. The underbelly of the leaves are a pink fuschia shade that helps to conserve light. These plants typically reach 2-3ft wide. Flowering is very rare. 

Part Sun


This plant likes most rooms with windows facing west or east. You could place it in a spot away from a very sunny window – as light intensity goes down quick as you move away from the light source.


Medium


Water one a week. Before watering, feel the soil, top layer should be dry, if not dry wait a day or two. If the soil still is wet you risk giving the plant too much water, you don’t want it to rot.


Pet Friendly


Yay! This plant is not toxic to our furry friends (regardless, you don’t want them to chew on this beauty).

Care Tips

Too much light can burn the leaves

The tips of the leaves might become brown which can be due to under-watering. You can cut these parts off, but clean your scissors with alcohol first

If multiple leaves appear withered or bend inward, this could mean that your air is too dry

Triostar like moisture but do not over water since the soil will become soggy and the roots will rot. Try to be consistent with watering

Remove dust once a month with a wet sponge to keep the leaves clean and to help the photosynthesis process
