Calathea lancifolia 'Rattlesnake Plant'
Calathea lancifolia is a beautiful understory tropical plant. A member of the beloved "prayer plant" family lancifolia has (like many prayer plants) a burgundy under-leaf which closes up into "prayer" at night to deter predators. Calathea lancifolia likes to stay evenly moist and prefers distilled or filtered water. Humidity is also really important for all Calathea. Misting, pebble trays, or if possible putting them in the bathroom are great ways to keep the humidity morale high for this plant. If you start to see crispy brown leaf edges, it's probably due to low humidity. Grow this plant in medium to low light and pot in our tropical soil mix and you'll be set up for success!
