Size Guide

The Calathea Lancifolia says ‘Good Morning’ and ‘Goodnight’ by waving its elongated, perfectly crinkled, patterned green-on-green leaves. As a Marantaceae family member, the Rattlesnake Prayer Plant has medium-difficulty care requirements. It also moves up and down according to the light cycles, revealing its matte-plum leaf undersides at night. Since it’s a non-toxic plant, this eye-catcher is a perfect addition to any family! 

  • FAQ about Rattlesnake Prayer Plant Care:
    • Why has my Calathea stopped moving?
      • The movement of your Calathea’s leaves (nyctinasty) is based on the light cycle. Your plant has likely stopped moving because it is not receiving enough sunlight during the day.Rattlesnake Prayer Plant’s require low-to-medium indirect light to care for their needs properly: nyctinasty included! Move your leafy friend closer to a window with filtered sunlight.
    • Why are my Calathea’s leaves pointing in one direction?
      • Leaves pointed in the same direction indicate that your Calathea is receiving too much light. Move it further away from the light source.
    • Why has my Calathea’s color faded?
      • Calathea Lancioflia absorbs light through their leaves’ tops and bottoms, making them suitable to lower light conditions than other all-green varieties of Calathea. To care for your Rattlesnake Prayer Plant, move it to a location with medium to low, indirect light.
    • Why does my Calathea have brown tips?
      • Raise the levels of humidity in your Calathea Rattlesnake’s environment. Water your plant more consistently, especially during its growing season. Use distilled water or tap water that has sat out for 24-hours.
    • Why is my Calathea yellowing?
      • Inconsistent watering care habits will cause your Rattlesnake Prayer Plant’s leaves to be yellow. Water your plant more consistently. Ensure that your plant is not rootbound; this will contribute to your plant needing more frequent watering and will also starve it of soil-bound nutrients.
    • Why are my Rattlesnake Plant’s leaves curling?
      • This is a sign of dehydration. Water your plant more frequently and soak the soil thoroughly when you do so.
