How To: Care for a Calathea Rattlesnake Plant

Dec 29, 2020 — Sarah Sprout

The calathea rattlesnake plant, scientifically called the calathea lancifolia, or formerly, the calthea insignis, is a beautiful plant known for its striking leaf patterns and colors. It is well liked as an indoor houseplant because it does not require bright light, it prefers indirect, filtered light. The rattlesnake plant offers a variety of color and pattern not often seen in houseplants, and so this plant is a striking mix to add to any indoor houseplants collection.
