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. 


• 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. Pet friendly!


You'll get a healthy Calathea lancifolia that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4"  or 6" nursery pot – Planter sold separately. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos - 6" plant shown.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Rattlesnake plant

I just received my rattlesnake plant and it is doing awesome. The plant is very healthy and thriving. Considering everything that is occurring with the pandemic and the fires everywhere my order came in very quickly. Thanks again and I will be a repeat customer.
