Stromanthe is a strikingly beautiful houseplant that never fails to catch the eye. It has an exotic look with its dark green leaves that are delightfully variegated with streaks of pink and cream. As if that’s not enough, the backsides of the leaves are a lovely shade of pinkish-purple. As a young plant, stromanthe is an eye-catching addition to a coffee table or side table (or desk in the office). As it grows (slowly — very slowly!) becomes larger and better suited to use as a floor plant. Accent stromanthe’s colorful foliage with an interesting container. A dark brown or black container, for example, can help to highlight the exotic variegation. Or use a purple container to accent the color of the undersides of the leaves.
