Calathea Rattlesnake for Sale Online
Rattlesnake Calathea Plants have beautifully patterned dark green polka dot leaves with purple undersides. Loved for their funky, wavy foliage and unique coloring, these tropical plants will add interest and style to any space.
Botanically referred to as Calathea Lancifolia, these popular indoor plants grow best in high humidity and bright indirect light. The Rattlesnake prefers moist but not wet soil for optimal growth. Plant your Rattlesnake plant in a well draining potting mix in a pot with drainage holes to avoid overwatering your plant. We recommend watering when the top inch of your plant's soil has dried as a rule of thumb.
As a member of the Prayer Plant family, these funky plants are considered a bit higher maintenance than your typical houseplant. But don't let this information deter you from these gorgeous specimens! As long as you follow the standard Calathea care regimen, your plant should be fine.
Some additional care tips for these fun tropicals include instilling proper placement and consistency. This means avoiding spots that stimulate dry air and keeping up with consistent humidity and room temperature levels.
Some common hints that your Calathea wants more moisture are brown leaf tips and crunchy foliage. Applying a well-balanced fertilizer in the Prayer Plant's growing spring and summer seasons is encouraged. Calathea also would prefer filtered or purified water over tap water.
Growing near 30 inches tall at maturity, the Rattlesnake Calathea will bring all the tropical and modern vibes to your space.
