How to care
Calatheas thrive in medium, indirect sunlight but tolerate lower light levels too. Bright direct sunlight can cause the stunning colours on their leaves to fade, with prolonged exposure likely to burn and scorch their leaves.
Keep the soil moist, but not saturated. Water your Calathea Rattlesnake more frequently during spring and summer. Water only when the topsoil becomes dry to touch during winter.
Will enjoy frequent misting and a pebble tray partially filled with water. Steamy bathrooms and kitchens make for a great location to get some extra humidity.
Sad Plant Signs
Yellowing leaves and burnt tips: too much direct sunlight or excessive fluoride in water. Limp, drooping leaves which are brown and curling: your plant is thirsty & dry. Brown or black spots on leaves: overwatering
Characteristics Non-toxic to pets & children
Characteristics Detoxifying power
Native to the rainforests of Colombia and Venezuela, the Calathea Rattlesnake is a low-light plant. This stunning tropical plant thrives in moist, warm, semi-shady climates. So it needs lots of heat and humidity to keep this plant happy and healthy.
