Stromanthe Plants make a great plant to give as a Christmas present if you’re tired of Poinsettias. A Stromanthe Plant can be grown indoor or outdoors, but will not survive a hard freeze. Since a Stromanthe Plant is a relative of the Prayer Plant and a member of the Maranta family, its leaves fold up at night as though praying. Stromanthe Plants produce reddish pink flowers in the spring, but they can’t compete with this plants dazzling leaves. A Stromanthe Plant is a spectacular looking plant, but challenging to grow, definitely not for beginners.
