Calathea Lancifolia - Rattlesnake Plant

$ 12.00

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.

Simply awesome!

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!
