Calathea lancifolia or Rattlesnake plant as it's sometimes known is a beautiful plant with striking foliage. This plant has specific requirements but will thrive if looked after well.
Calathea plants need bright, but not direct, sunlight to grow. This is because they grow on the floor of jungles and forests where they get limited light through the tops of the trees. In fact, direct sunlight will burn the leaves of a Calathea plant and cause it to lose its vibrant colours.
Calathea like to have damp soil but not soggy. When you water a Calathea plant, do not water it so much that the plant ends up sitting in standing water.
Invest in a mister, your plant will love you for it.
