Care info

Sun: The Rattlesnake Plant 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-75º and a high moisture content. Most indoor air will require extra humidity in order for the Calathea 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 3-6x per week with non-tap water
• Placement in a bathroom or kitchen, if lighting is suitable

Spiritual Interpretation

The Rattlesnake Plant is part of the Calathea family, which symbolizes 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.
