Calathea Rattlesnake

Calathea Lancifolia

Very unique long crinkle-cut leaves!

My leaves are marked in a way that makes them look painted. Because my foliage is also thinner and longer than the leaves of other calatheas, I've earned the name 'Rattlesnake'.

Working to its own internal rhythms, this Calathea responds to morning light by spreading its leaves and closes them in the evening. With additional air purifying qualities and a relatively speedy growth habit, this is one of our all-round stars!

Growing pot size:14cm

Overall plant height including growing pot:45-55cm

Pets: Pet friendly

Toxicity: Good news: I am pet friendly!

Care Instructions

Light

I like a lot of diffused light, but direct sunlight will cause the leaves to fade and lose my precious markings. Because I grow on the canopy floor, I can tolerate shade, but I grow much better with indirect light.

Water

I like my soil to be moist, but I am also susceptible to root rot, so don't let me sit in water. Think little and often as a watering policy.

Temperature

I prefer warm to high temperatures, ideally between 18-23°C but can cope with as low as 15°C. Please keep me away from draughts!

Feeding

Apply a weak dose of a nitrogen rich foliage fertiliser once or twice a month during the growing season.

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet friendly!

Grooming

Wipe my leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust, so that I can breathe properly.

Care

High humidity levels are a must. Stand on a wet pebble tray to improve humidity and mist frequently. Pop it in the shower from time to time to give an extra boost.
