SUN


Calatheas prefers medium and indirect light. Placement at the interior of bright rooms and near north or east-facing windows is ideal. They’re adaptable to lower light levels, however, improper lighting will change the leaf appearance.

WATER

Keep soil consistently moist but not wet. Water when the topsoil has dried 1-2 inches and use room temperature, non-tap water. Reduce frequency during fall and winter.

AIR

Mimic a tropical environment with temperatures between 65º-85º and a high moisture content. Most indoor air will require extra humidity in order for the Rattlesnake to thrive. Provide a regular boost of humidity by:


  • Adding a humidifier nearby
  • Creating a pebble tray that lives underneath the pot
  • Misting the leaves 2-4x per week with non-tap water
  • Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable

PET FRIENDLY

Calatheas are safe for cats and dogs. 

HEALTH BENEFITS

Active exposure to and care for plants has many proven wellbeing benefits, such as: 


  • Lower stress levels
  • Improved mood
  • Superior mental clarity and focus

Calatheas are excellent air-purifiers. We recommend them as a plant to keep in the bedroom: their peaceful leaves, oxygenating properties, and humidifying capabilities will help you sleep better and feel refreshed in the morning. Keep their leaves free of dust for optimal photosynthesis and oxygen production.

SPIRITUAL INTERPRETATIONS

Calatheas symbolize new beginnings. The daily act of expanding its leaves at the start of each day reminds us to approach each day with a fresh heart and mind. 


They make lovely gifts to mark the start of new chapters and life transitions.
