Let's talk about the leaves on this Calathea - lance-shaped with wavy edges that can grow up to 30 inches in length. The colouring of this tropical plant is also something to shout about, with dark green spots decorating its leaves, coupled with undersides in burgundy red tones. Like other Calathea plants, the Rattlesnake will move it's leaves up at night and lower them in the day in accordance with its circadian rhythm.

We told you the Rattlesnake had good leaves - so good they're not just admired by fellow plant fanatics like ourselves, but in their native Brazil they are used for handicrafts and food wrapping.

This plant isn't overly difficult to care for, but it won't tolerate neglect either. Infrequent water or cooler temperatures could cause it to die. Avoid using shine products on any dusty leaves, instead just wipe them down with a damp cloth occasionally.

Jo's Top Tip
Filters at the ready please - the Rattlesnake Plant doesn't bode well with hard tap water as it can damage its luscious leaves. If you don't have a filter, leave the water out overnight in a container before giving to your plant.

Does not come with decorative pot.

    Your plant has been on quite the adventure to get to you, so it might need a drink and some time to adjust to its new home. It’s perfectly normal that it may be showing some minor signs of stress after shipment.

    If your plant is damaged beyond what you’d expect, let us know within 30 days, and a friendly member of the Plant Folk will be able to help you. All you need to do is take a couple of pictures of the problem area and one of the whole plant and send them to hello@beardsanddaisies.co.uk. We’ll then make things right as quickly as we can, so you can get on with enjoying plant parenthood.
