This member of the Marantaceae family is called Rattlesnake Plant for its striking patterns. Long and narrow, the leaves have ruffled edges that are unique to this Calathea species. They are bright green with alternating dark-green markings down each leaf. The underside of the leaves are purple. Of course, they also fold up at night just like prayer plants.
They like Bright, indirect sunlight. No direct sun, which will cause brown scorch marks on its leaves. Pot it in a well draining soil and aim to keep the potting mix lightly moist; never allow it to dry out. Calathea are sensitive to fluoride and chlorine in tap water so we recommend you use distilled or rain water.
These plants are in 4” or 6” pots.
