4" Calathea Rattlesnake

$15.00
There are two explanations for the Calathea Rattlesnake's name. One is that the wild dark green spots on pale green leaves resemble the skin of a snake. The other is that, as a member of the Prayer plant family, the Rattlesnake also folds its leaves at night resembling praying hands, accompanied by a soft rustling sound that reminds one of a snake. This is one of the hardier Calatheas which can even grow outside all year in California and Florida when acclimated for direct sunlight. They are less prone to leaf-tip burn and are less fussy, making this forgiving Calathea is a good choice for beginners.
  • Also known as Calathea Lancifolia

Quick Care Guide:

  • Water - Med/High (4):   Prefers more water than most, but soil can dry out periodically. Use a spray bottle to mist and increase humidity levels without soaking the soil and roots.
  • Light - Medium (3):   Plant prefers natural, diffused light. Can be placed in a spacious living room. Indirect light preferred. No direct sunlight on leaves.
  • Difficulty - Low/Med (2):  A little less finicky than most. Doesn't require much attention at all.
