Calathea Lancifolia - Rattlesnake


This Calathea Lancifolia also commonly called the Rattlesnake comes with dark green leaves that has unique ripples. Calatheas perform a wonderful dance each day as the leaves close up in the evening and unfurl each morning - a movement which lets you appreciate the red underside of the leaves in the evening and the unique leaf patterns during the day. Calathea Plants, native to tropical South and Central America, Africa, and the West Indies, are grown primarily for their beautiful, brightly colored, upright, oval leaves which exhibits strappy, spotted leaves and deep purple undersides.

Partial Sun: Plants that like this type of light are mostly the type of plants that grow on the forest floor, where they are somewhat protected against direct sunlight during some hours of the day. This is also a very normal light situation for many windows, usually with a west- or east- facing window with around 4 hours of direct light each day. This could also be a spot further away from a very sunny window.
