Rattlesnake Calathea | Calathea lancifolia

Latin Name: Calathea lancifolia insignis
Plant height (inc. pot) - Pot width

Another beautiful Calathea from Brazil. Very bold markings on long elegant leaves. Great as a stand alone plant or as part of a tropical display.

Longer leaves than most calatheas which bush out to create a wonderfully eye catching specimen. Will reach an ultimate height of 1 metre tall, at which point it will continue to bush out and increase density. Re-pot every year for maximum growth potential and use a well-draining compost that's kept moist during summer.

You can tell when this plant needs water as the leaves will begin to wilt. Little brown spots on the leaves indicate overwatering.
