Calathea Lancifolia - Rattlesnake Plant
Calathea lancifolia is a perfect houseplant for pattern lovers who like to decorate wild. Its bright green, wavy leaves are striped with alternating ovals of dark green and accented by a rich purple underside. The plant gets its name from its lance-shaped foliage, and the leaves grow more elongated as the plant matures. Its bushy, compact growth habit makes it ideal as a medium sized floor plant or tabletop accent -- anywhere that needs a little extra green and a tropical feel.
Like most plants in the Calathea genus, the lancifolia is simple to care for, an ideal beginner's houseplant. Simply place the plant where it will receive medium to bright indirect light, shielding from direct sun. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feel dry, and mist periodically to maintain high humidity.

Shipped and arrived perfectly. It is fairly easy to care for and I love the fact that the leaves move. My family loves the plant so much; I bought my Grandma and Mom each one for their own homes!
Love my calathea!
My planter where I had my other rattlesnake calathea got blocked up and my poor plant drowned! The local garden center where I purchased it originally stopped carrying them, and I was lucky to find Pistil’s. The quality is great and the one I bought arrived safe and sound in its packaging. Great updates the whole way while they were sending it and it arrived a day early, too!
My new addition arrived in beautiful condition. I’m thinking of ordering another Rattlesnake Calathea for a friend!
