Calathea (Rattlesnake Plant)

Rattlesnake Plant

This house plant can be a little tricky to grow, but if its conditions are met, its beautiful foliage is well worth the work. Long leaves with contrasting stripes make for an eye-catching houseplant that can reach its mature size of 1-2' in as little as a year. These plants are sensitive to cold, so keep them in a warm location and never let the temperature drop below 60F. Fertilize once a month and keep above 50% humidity for best results. Do not expose to full sun - indirect light only.
