The rattlesnake plant is marked by it's slender pale green leaves, heavily marked above with dark blotches, purple below.
Native to Brazil this is a beautiful houseplant if you want to add a bit of color.
Light: Medium to bright, indirect light
Water: Water when the top 1" of soil feels dry
Considerations: Like most Calathea, the Rattlesnake Plant does not like to dry out. High humidity and persistent watering will help this plant thrive.
This is a great plant especially if you have a cat! It is gorgeous and pet friendly! Thank you for sending this plant -it has already brought lots of smiles to the family I sent it to! I just ordered another one!
We started experiencing a heat wave right after I placed my order and I was worried how shipping would go (bad timing on my part). I voiced my concerns in an email and was met with an encouraging reply. The Rattlesnake Plant did amazing on his travels and arrived to me in fantastic condition despite the above 100 F weather. I've had him for a couple weeks now and he's already having new growth! Thank you again, you guys are awesome!
I love my plant! The package came with an extra piece and I am very pleased with the service. The distributors also kept in contact during the process.
