  • Latin Name: Calathea Lancifolia
  • Common Name: Rattlesnake Plant
  • Characteristics: The Calathea Insignis, most commonly known as the Rattlesnake Plant is an evergreen plant which has shades of green on top of the foliage, with dark green patches either side of the midrib of each leaf. As with many Calatheas, it also has a reddish-pink underside on each leaf, giving the plant a really nice contrast.
  • Plant Advice: During summer months, water the plant around two or three times a month, ensuring the soil is kept moist during this period. In Wintertime, watering the plant becomes less regular, so you should only water the Rattlesnake Plant if the top soil is dry to touch. The care it needs is very minimal over the calendar year, it’s not a plant that is likely to cause you much hassle.

The plant more commonly known as the Rattlesnake Plant (the Calathea Insignis) is yet another member of the Calathea genus which copes extremely well in a variety of indoor environments. It prefers humid environments such as a bathroom or conservatory but would also appreciate a location where partial shade is almost an ever-present. Twice or three times a month in Summertime you should water this plant so that the soil is kept to a moist level. The regularity in watering can then be dropped in Winter where you should only water the plant when the top soil is dry to touch.
