Beautiful, hearty, native plant that thrives in terrariums, kokedamas, fairy gardens....
The downy rattlesnake plantain, is one of the most common orchids native to eastern North America, growing from Florida to Nova Scotia.
The evergreen foliage grows 2 - 3 inches high. Beautiful year round, Rattlesnake Plantain flowers in August- September, with small white flowers densely packed on a slender cylindrical spike, 6 to 12 inches tall. Resembling a rattlesnake's tail, you can pinch back the flower shoot to prevent the spike from growing. I've done this with my Rattlesnake Plants that are in terrariums but love how the flower spike looks in my kokedama and fairy gardens!
Thanks so much for checking out RiceWineDIYShop! NOTE: Etsy's shipping estimate is often too much. When purchasing more than one item, I combine shipping and charge only actual mailing cost~ and will refund all overages :)
Plants shipped extremely late. Poorly packed and most arrived with rotted leaves and roots. Soil all over the leaves seems to have caused the rot.
Extras were sent and it looks like several plants may recover, but I'm overall not thrilled with the purchase and quality of the product.
