Plant Features

The Calathea Lancifolia, commonly known as the Rattlesnake Plant, is a vibrant tropical houseplant with a distinctive appearance. Its long, wavy-edged leaves display a pattern that resembles a rattlesnake's skin, with dark green spots on a lighter green background and a deep purple underside. This plant is a favorite for adding a touch of the tropics to indoor settings.

Troubleshooting Calathea Lancifolia involves a keen eye for its care requirements. Brown leaf edges may indicate low humidity or over-fertilization. Curling leaves could be a sign of underwatering or exposure to cold drafts. Fading color in the leaves often results from insufficient light, while direct sunlight can cause the leaves to burn. Calathea Lancifolia is also prone to pests like spider mites, which thrive in dry conditions. Regular misting and wiping down the leaves can help prevent these issues.
