Commonly referred to as the “Rattlesnake Plant” in a nod to its striking leaf patterns, the Calathea Lancifolia is a great introduction to the Calathea family because of its more forgiving nature when compared to other Calathea varieties.
Native to South America, Calathea are accustomed to a lower light and humid environment, making them especially adaptable to living in our homes as a houseplant. Provided with optimal growing conditions, the mature Calathea Lancifolia can grow up to three feet tall.
Light: Calathea thrive in bright, indirect light, though you should avoid placing in direct sunlight to prevent leaf discoloration and sunburn. Paling and curling of the leaves can be an indication of too much direct sun.
Water: Make sure to keep your plant evenly moist, but not soggy or overwatered. Yellowing of the leaves and stems is a good indicator to pull back on your watering schedule, while curling of the leaves is an indication that your Calathea might need a more frequent drink.
Humidity: The main trick with Calathea is to maintain a warm, humid environment. We recommend adding a humidifier to your daily plant routine.
