WATER
Triostar like to be consistently moist soil but without allowing the roots to be waterlogged, little and often is the best method. Triostar can be sensitive to the chemicals in tap water so if possible use rain water or leave your tap water to sit uncovered for 24 hours as this will allow some of the chemicals to evaporate.

LIGHT
Bright indirect light or dappled light is best for a Calathea Triostar. Don't let direct sunlight shine on the leaves as this will burn them.

FERTILISING
Feed every 2 weeks with diluted standard houseplant fertiliser during Spring and Summer.

SOIL
Your like a soil that drains well so that the delicate roots don't become too waterlogged but one that also retains moisture to mimic the damp rainforest floor conditions that they are native to. Visit our soil bar for coco coir and vermiculite to add to a standard soil mix.

TEMPERATURE
Triostar are ok in standard household temperatures, but prefer it to be warm. It is best not to let them get below 15C. During the winter make sure they are not too close to warm radiators.

HUMIDITY
High humidity is the key to keeping this plant happy. Use a humidifier or a pebble tray to achieve this. Grouping plants together also helps with increasing humidity.

TOXICITY
Triostar are safe around pets and kids.
