Stem Cuttings

One of the easiest methods for Propagating Stromanthe Triostar is through stem cuttings. Here’s how:

1) First, choose a healthy parent plant with stems that are at least 4-6 inches long.
2) Using sharp and clean pruning shears or scissors make cuts just below a node where there is already some growth happening
3) Remove all but two or three leaves from each cutting (make sure these leaves stay intact).
4) Dip the cut end in rooting hormone powder (optional), then place them in pots filled with moist soil mix.
5) Water your newly planted cuttings thoroughly and cover them with plastic wrap or put them inside clear plastic bags until they take root.
6) After about four weeks remove their covering material let it be in indirect light for at least 8 hours per day


Another method used for propagating Stromanthe Triostar is by division during repotting time when roots become crowded.

1) Carefully dig up your parent plant
2) Gently separate out individual shoots using a sharp knife separating out clumps of at least 3 shoots
3) Plant each clump in separate pots
4) Keep the soil moist and avoid direct sunlight until they’re established.

Additional Tips

1. Use well-draining potting mix to prevent waterlogging.
2. Water your plant regularly but make sure it doesn’t sit in water because it can cause root rot.
3. Place your Stromanthe Triostar in a bright and humid area, but away from direct sunlight.
4. Mist or wipe down leaves with damp cloth weekly to keep dust off and boost humidity.


Stromanthe Triostar is an excellent plant for any indoor garden enthusiast who loves tropical plants. While propagating a new Stromanthe plant may seem daunting, using stem cuttings or division are both simple methods that even novice gardeners could handle without much difficulty by following the steps above!
