Grows as an understory plant on the damp forest floors of tropical Brazil.
This plant is from a tropical environment so it is well adapted to seasonal wet and dry conditions. To keep the foliage looking its best grow the plant in moist loam soil that is partly shaded and free from frost. Feed the plant and protect the soil from drying out by mimicking forest floor conditions with an organic mulch of materials such as leaf litter, bark and/or wood chip.
Grey Star has been grown successfully as an indoor plant, more commonly so in climates where the winters are too cold for the plant outdoors. If growing the plant inside ensure that the pot you use is heavy enough to cater for possible heights of 1m.
