Calathea lancifolia 'Rattlesnake' has long, wavy leaves with patterns that look painted on and dark purple undersides. Calatheas are part of the Marantaceae family, often called ‘Prayer Plants’ because as the light changes in the evening, the leaves rise upwards like two hands in prayer. We’ve potted this one with our tropical soil blend in a geometric ceramic pot. The pot includes a filtered drainage hole for easy watering.
LIGHT Prefers medium to bright, indirect light. Too much sun will cause the leaves to fade.
WATER Keep the soil evenly moist but not wet. Water with filtered, distilled or rainwater when possible as these plants are particularly sensitive to chemicals in tap water. Enjoys added humidity from misting.
SIZE Approximately 16" H X 16" W (Pot Size: 6” D)
