Humidity

Your Stromathe Peacock 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 drier. The leaves will turn brown and crispy when the air is too dry.

Light

Place your Stromanthe Peacock 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 Peacock 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

Keep the soil slightly damp and allow the top inch to dry out before watering again. Be careful to not overwater your Stromanthe Peacock. Overwatering can lead to root rot and eventually the plant will die. In the winter, allow the soil to dry out a little more between waterings, but never completely.
