Not as flamboyant as its cousin, 'Triostar,' this stromanthe has olive green leaves with wine-red undersides.

Though not as colorful as its cousin, 'Triostar,' Stromanthe sanguinea will hold its own as a lush indoor plant. Lance-shaped, olive green leaves are bisected by a pale green midrib and have the characteristic wine-red backsides. Stromanthes hover at the top of the list for houseplants needing higher humidity. Crispy brown edges or unsightly brown splotches on the leaves usually signal too dry an environment. Planting it in a container with ferns, palms, or other moisture-tolerant specimens is helpful. Otherwise, daily misting, installing a humidifier or placing the container on a pebble-filled saucer with water added (away from heat vents) will help keep the leaves pristine and healthy. It may also be happy in well-lit bathrooms or kitchens.
