Stromanthe sanguinea is an easy, tropical Prayer Plant that displays long, spear-shaped, olive green leaves with light, center stripes. Matures into an upright clump. The leaf undersides are colored like red wine, and glow brilliantly when backlit.
Stromanthe sanguinea prefers an evenly moist, aerated soil mix and a humid environment. Placing a humidifier or pebble tray with water near the plant will help with this. Bright, indirect light is ideal, avoiding direct, scorching sun rays. Protect from frost!
