  • Botanical name: Calathea lancifolia
  • Native to Brazil
  • Live, fully grown, healthy plant · Grown in the USA

Is This the Right Plant for You?

Like others of its kind, the Calathea Rattlesnake gets its name from the unique patterns on its foliage. As a member of the prayer plant family, the long, patterned leaves will close at night, revealing a deep magenta shade on their underside.

customer reviews for the Calathea Rattlesnake

Arrived beautiful and a perfect gift addition the recipient’s plant collection

Beautiful plant, perfectly delivered

I needed a gift for a colleague of mine who's father passed away. Rather than send flowers I wanted to send something naturally beautiful that will last beyond the life of cut flowers. As a regular customer of L&G (fiddle leaf, snake plant and rubber tree) I knew the quality was what I was looking for so could confidently order from you. My colleague loved the plant and has shared how much it brings her a smile when she looks at it.

A beautiful addition to my in-home GREENERY

She shipped almost immediately, was a little scrunched when she arrived ... I gave her the ‘best seat in the house’ and she’s flourished amazingly ever since! A very thirsty girl, so we drink together on the weekends, and sometimes during the week. LOL! Such a beauty ...
