6" Calathea Lancifolia 'Rattlesnake'


We have run out of stock for this item.

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. Less prone to leaf-tip burn and less fussy, this forgiving Calathea is a good choice for beginners.
