Humidity

Your Stromanthe Angustifolia loves a humid environment, so feel free to mist every day. Use a pebble tray or a humidifier during the winter months when the air tends to be much drier. The leaves will turn brown and crispy when the air is too dry.

Light

Place your Stromanthe Angustifolia in a warm, well-lit spot. The more indirect light the plant receives, the more variegation you will see on the leaves. Never expose it to direct sunlight–it will scorch the leaves.

Temperature

Your Stromanthe Angustifolia prefers temperatures between 65-80 degrees during the day and no cooler than 60 degrees at night. Avoid placing your plants near heating and air conditioning vents and fans.

Watering

A Stromanthe Angustifolia likes to be kept barely moist at all times. Be careful not to over-water or the roots rot and the plant dies. In winter, allow the soil of a Stromanthe Angustifolia to dry out a little more, but never completely.

Fertilizing

Feed your Stromanthe Angustifolia every month during the Spring-Fall months when it is producing new leaves. Always dilute the fertilizer to half the recommended strength and never apply to dry soil.
