The Rattlesnake calathea has an exceptional leaf color
it is green but almost white near its edges. It grows slower than other calatheas, but it’s worth waiting for. This plant is recommended for beginner to intermediate growers because it can be cared for indoors as well as outdoors.
The rattlesnake calathea can tolerate dry conditions
This is an ideal plant for someone who has found that other plants do not grow in their apartment or for people who simply do not have much time to tend to their garden. The rattlesnake calathea is drought-tolerant, meaning that it can tolerate long periods of dryness. This also means that it requires less care than other plants and does not need watering as often. It thrives with minimal attention.
The rattlesnake calathea rarely needs repotting
Although rattlesnake calatheas are tropical plants, they rarely need repotting. That said, they do enjoy a pot that drains very well. Rattlesnake calatheas can be propagated via stem cutting or leaf cuttings: Rooted stem cuttings of rattlesnake calathea require bright light with daytime temperatures between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 27 degrees Celsius). Stem cuttings will root in about two months in constant warmth and moderate moisture.
The rattlesnake calathea makes a great indoor plant
It requires little sunlight, so it is perfect for areas of your home where direct sunlight isn’t available. They don’t require much attention, and they are easy to care for. You can propagate these plants by dividing them during repotting to give them more room in their containers or allow you to share with friends. They grow slowly throughout their lives; after a year, most calatheas have only grown from 4 inches high to 12 inches high.
