Calathea lancifolia 'Rattlesnake Plant' - Plant

Common Name - Rattlesnake Plant

Scientific Name - Calathea lancifolia

Description          

            Rattlesnake Plants (Calathea lancifolia) aren't the easiest houseplants to nurture, but, if you give them the care they need, you will be rewarded with an impressive display from their foliage. This tropical calathea species is native to the rainforests of Brazil and gets its common name from the distinctive decorative markings that are displayed on its leaves. The plant can grow up to 30 inches tall, and the large leaves have a variegated pattern with various shades of greens and a wavy pattern along their edges. Even the undersides of the foliage are eye-catching with their beautiful purplish-red tones. In its native region, the rattlesnake plant produces small yellow flowers in the late spring. As a houseplant, you will be growing this plant for its impressively ornamental, long, and elegant foliage as it rarely blooms indoors.

Calathea lancifolia Plant Care and Instruction 

                    A key consideration for any calathea plant is proper lighting, and the rattlesnake is no exception. If it gets too much direct sunlight, the vibrant spotted markings will begin to fade. Filtered light is the best option. If you want to have your rattlesnake plant in a window, select one that doesn't have intense afternoon sun streaming through it, or diffuse the light with drapes. A bright spot in a conservatory or a well-lit room away from the direct light in a window can work well too. Over the summer period, when your rattlesnake plant experiences the most growth, they will need to be watered frequently. Keeping the soil or potting mix moist is important. The ideal temperatures for this plant are around 60-75ºF. If it is exposed to prolonged temperatures below this, the leaves can wilt and brown, and it will eventually die off. 

Light - Bright indirect sunlight

Place - Bright indoors

Water- once a week

Fertilizer - A weak dose of a specialized foliage variety with a decent amount of nitrogen works well for plants with lots of leaves.
