Humidity

Your Stromanthe Thalia 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 Thalia 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

Stromanthe Thalia prefer 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 Thalia. 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.

Fertilizing

Feed a Stromanthe Thalia every month during the Spring-Fall months when it producing new leaves. Always dilute the fertilizer to the ½ strength and never apply on dry soil.
