Calathea lancifolia - Rattlesnake Calathea
Talk about a stand-out plant! The Calathea lancifolia, more commonly known as the Rattlesnake Calathea, is a unique plant with its elongated, wavy leaves and medium green tone. As if that is not enough, the darker oval colourations throughout the leaves give it a snakeskin appearance. The eccentric beauty is rounded out with the classic Calathea leaf undersides, which are deep purple.
These plants tend to be lower-growing plants commonly found as ground cover in a jungle. Like prayer plants (maranta), these plants also move their leaves in a praying hands method throughout the day. It is awesome to see their leaves in different positions in the morning and at night! These plants can be difficult to get the hang of, so be sure to read the water and light requirements in the other tabs!
Pet lovers will be happy to know that these plants are non-toxic. But please don't let cute little Midnight nibble these beautiful leaves!
