What other plant parents say
I’m new to owning a rattlesnake plant, but I really love them so far! I’ve noticed the new growth has trouble unfurling without humidity, so I keep mine next to a humidifier. Tons of new leaves shoot…
Beautiful foliage and pet friendly! Seems more low maintenance than my other calatheas.
the easiest calathea imo. good one to get your feet wet on!
Brown tips galore! But otherwise very sturdy
it closes at night!

Select your city to see how the current weather in your area affects the placement of Rattlesnake Plant in your home 🏡.
Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Rattlesnake Plant after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
