Calathea Rattlesnake

139

1 ft tall

Hailing from the rainforests of Brazil, this attractive and vibrant plant will bring an instant tropical feel to any home or office. Bright indirect light and a humid environment are what this plant likes best, though it can also adjust to dimmer areas just as it might on the shady rainforest floor.

customer reviews for the Calathea Rattlesnake

Wonderful experience

The plants were in beautiful condition and the packaging did an incredible job of keeping them safe while they got to me. I also really appreciated the care instructions. They are a beautiful addition to my home. I will definitely be back, both for more plants for my home and to send as gifts to others.

Léon & George delivers healthy and beautiful indoor plants to your door—already potted, styled, and ready for their closeup.

Not necessarily, especially if you plan ahead a bit. If you're going away for a week or less, there should be no problem if you soak the soil in advance.

Your plants look so perfect in the pictures… Are they real?!

Yes! Our plants are 100% real, which means that they'll need a little TLC to keep growing.

Can I send a plant as a gift? How does that work?

We're a little biased, but we think plants make the perfect gift. Start by selecting the delivery location at the top of any Léon & George webpage. That way, you'll see exactly which plants are available. After you pick out a plant, simply fill in the recipient's address for shipping. You can even add a personal note for them at checkout, and we'll include it with their delivery. White-glove deliveries (for large and extra large plants only) can be scheduled at checkout. In this case, be sure to let the recipient know to be home during the delivery window.

What's included with the plant when it's delivered as a gift?

Every gift order includes the plant and pot set, simple care instructions to keep the plant happy and healthy. Gift orders are also covered under our 45-day guarantee and our Plant Doctor program, which means the recipient can call us anytime for plant care support.
