Rattlesnake Plant / Calathea Lancifolia / Prayer Plant - Unique Live Tropical House Plant

**DESCRIPTION**
This exotic plant is colorful and unique. Calathea is a special plant: it closes its leaves at night and opens them again in the morning! The plant owes this ability to a small ‘joint’ between the leaf and stem. Light moves the joints and, as a result, Calathea’s leaves open and close. Sometimes you can even hear the rustling sound of the leaves closing!

**CARE**
LIGHT-A good bright spot within a room or conservatory without direct sunlight is advised. Too much direct sun will cause issues.

TEMPERATURE- Room temperatures that average 65-75ºF and no lower than 60ºF. Avoid drafts and sudden temperature changes.

WATER-During the growing season (May - Aug) water frequently. Always keep the soil moist. During the winter cut this down and only water when the top soil has become dry to the touch.

HUMIDITY- Since the plant loves moist areas, you can leave a tray under your pot with pebbles to hold moisture from the water that escapes from the hole on the bottom of the pot so the plant remains moist. You can also use a humidifier for this task.

**Shipping**
The plant photographed is one of the plants out of a few that I have, so it may not look exactly the same. I strongly suggest picking the fastest shipping method available at checkout. Your plant will be shipped a 4" nursery pot. Upon arrival your Calathea may look a bit down, but will return to health soon after it has acclimated. Remember that plants are not used to traveling by car or plane.

Shipping to areas that are too cold or too hot will be at buyer's risk. Many plants will go dormant in the cold/dark months and we may ship plants while they're dormant however, the plants are still alive they're just working on their root systems. It is normal and healthy for plants to go dormant.
