Humidity: This is a tropical plant used to the floor of the Brazilian rain forest so thrives with lots of humidity. Bunch together with other plants or use a diffuser to create the perfect environment.

History of Calathea Triostar
Stromanthe Triostar isn't actually a Calathea but is very closely related hence the common name. It is native to Brazil and can grow up to 5 feet tall in the wild.
Why is it called a Prayer Plant?
Prayer Plants get their name from their ability to fold their leaves up at night like praying hands.
Why do they do this?
They open their leaves during the day to absorb as much sunlight as possible, allowing photosynthesis to take place. In the evening, when there is no more light source, why they fold them back however, is still in debate. Some believe it to prevent bacteria and fungus from forming on their leaves, whilst other believe its solely due to their circadian rhythm. Receptors in the plants leaves respond to light in what is called nyctinastic movement ( like muscle that flexes and relaxes when exposed to a light source).

I usually buy scented candles that are quite subtle in nature but decided to be adventurous and purchased the candle gift set leaving the choice to Earth and Vine. The scents are are not what I would usually get but smell delicious. Absolutely lovely.
This is a lovely plant and the colour of the leaves are amazing
This pot was a gift coupled with Mother-in-Law’s tongue plant and together they looked stunning! The recipient was delighted with the combo and commented on how remarkable the pot was. It truly is a gorgeous plant pot and well worth the money. Thank you!
