Rattlesnake Plant Calathea
Rattlesnake plant (Calathea lancifolia) is a decorative plant with strappy, spotted leaves and deep purple undersides. This unique beauty is sure to brighten up and room.
Your Rattlesnake Plant is a great low light plant and will do best in medium to low light. This gorgeous tropical plant doesn’t like much sun on its leaves, so shield it from direct light to prevent scorching.
Water the Rattlesnake enough to keep it moist, but not wet or saturated as yellowing may occur on the leaves. During May-August, water more frequently to keep the soil damp, but never waterlogged. In the winter, only water when the topsoil becomes dry to the touch. Extended periods of dryness can result in leaves curling and brown leaf tips or edges. Overwatering causes the plant to wilt—and wilted plants recover slowly.
Rattlesnake Plants are non-poisonous plants and safe for humans, dogs, and cats.
