The Stromanthe Triostar is grown for green-and-white foliage with a pattern almost resembling a time-lapse photo of the night sky. This plant improves your air quality. The Calathea removes impurities from the air and converts them into oxygen.
Long narrow, glossy leaves of this Calathea are patterned with flecks of white variegation, with occasional leaves displaying a more extreme variegation pattern as seen in the 'Triostar' cultivar. The undersides of the leaves are a glorious ruby red, which the plant shows off at night as it folds its leaves vertically in a diurnal rhythm as if in prayer - though this behaviour isn't as extreme in Stromanthe thalia as it is in some other members of the Prayer Plant family (Marantaceae). The accepted botanical name is Stromanthe thalia 'Magicstar', but is also often referred to as Stromanthe sanguinea 'Magicstar', Stromanthe sanguinea and Calathea 'Magicstar'. It's commonly known as Magicstar Prayer Plant, Never Never Plant.
