Native to the rainforests of Brazil, the Stromanthe Sanguinea 'Magic Star' is hard-to-find member of the Prayer Plant family. Although a bit muted compared to its close relative, the Stromanthe Triostar, the Magic Star boasts glossy and long finger-like foliage that is green in color with flecks of white variegation. The undersides of the leaves are a ruby red. This plant thrives in medium to bright indirect light and above average humidity.
