About: Calathea Lancifolia’s leaves are long and narrow like a lance or sword. They can grow up to about 12 inches (30 centimeters) long. The leaves on this variety are thick and glossy. They have a wavy, bubbly texture. Leaves on the Rattlesnake Plant are bright green with dark green oval-shaped “bubbles” on either side of the central leaf vein, similar to rattlesnake patterning on its back. The undersides of the leaves are reddish-purple. The dark green spots appear on both sides of the leaves. This Calathea grows a little bit smaller than other varieties, no more than 18 inches (45 cm) tall. Calathea Lancifolia blooms in the spring. It has yellow flowers on 4-inch spikes. However, Blooms are rare if you kept them as indoor plants.

Lancifolia Care tips This Calathea is less of a drama queen than some of its cousins. In general, Lancifolia responds well to standard Prayer Plant care. Make sure to keep temperatures between 60°F and 85°F, keep the humidity up, and pot in a coarse, well-draining soil mix.
