Get it Planted: Without pot

One of the most popular varieties, the Lancifolia or "Rattlesnake" Calathea is loved for its wavy, slender leaves with striking 2-tone green dot pattern on the top, and deep purple underside. This "prayer plant" opens and closes with the sun, so the two-sided leaf can be viewed from all angles throughout the day.

Pro Tips

Calatheas love humidity, so mist them occasionally or leave them in a tray of pebbles and water. Keep away from AC and heat drafts. Another sign to look for when thirsty is closed leaves during the daytime. To ensure glossy new growth, allow plant water to sit out overnight, or use pruified water. Calathea have different metabolisms from other plants, and aren't able to handle all the chemicals typically found in tap water.

Origin

Native to South America and a member of the Marantaceae family, which includes the Arrowroot plant. These plants grow under the shade of larger canopied plants in the rainforest. Also known as "Prayer Plants", the leaves spread out during the day to maximise sunlight, and then retract at night.
