Rattlesnake Calathea Plant Care

On your Rattlesnake Calathea’s first few days at home, avoid moving the pot around once you choose its placement and allow it to adjust to a stable environment. To help it grow optimally and evenly, occasionally dust the leaves and rotate the pot by a ¼ turn once a month. You may prune old leaves to assist the new growth.

How Big Do Rattlesnake Calathea Plants Grow?

Rattlesnake Calathea grows slowly and steadily until reaching about two feet in height. Once mature, it will keep growing new leaves to replace older ones. When it grows several new leaves at a time, it will normally lose one or two leaves from the bottom. In as little as a year or two, the Rattlesnake Calathea matures to its fullest growth of 2 feet. From there on out, it will get bushier but no longer increase in height. With proper care and attention, these plants have been known to produce several new leaves every month from spring until summer! Bright, indirect light, high humidity, and potting soil that stays damp but not wet will help the Rattlesnake Calathea grow in a healthy way. Remember that this houseplant loves a rest period, so you may see it slow down its growth during the winter months when it is dormant.

Temperature & Humidity

With tropical origins, rattlesnake calathea plants thrive in warm environmental conditions, preferably between 65°F-85°F (18°C-30°C). To keep these beloved houseplants from experiencing any cold damage, try to maintain a temperature of at least 60°F (15°C). Moreover, for your Rattlesnake Plant to look its best, ensure that the humidity levels reach 50% or higher - similar to their native rainforest habitat.

Are Rattlesnake Calathea Toxic for Pets & Kids?

Rattlesnake Calathea is non-toxic and safe for humans and animals alike. This plant is pet-friendly and makes a great addition to any home with kids or pets. To ensure that your furry friends don't accidentally munch on the leaves, place your houseplant in an area where they won't be tempted. It's important to remember that excessive consumption of the plant may lead to minor distress or an upset stomach; however, rest assured that it is non-toxic and won't result in any serious complications.

Troubleshooting Common Problems with Rattlesnake Calathea

If you notice leaves are curling, relocate the pot to a less brightly lit location. Similarly, if the lower leaves start to become yellow - while this may be the natural aging process - it could also signal overwatering. Brown leaf tips are normally an effect of dry air with inadequate humidity levels; increase these accordingly for optimal results! Cold temperatures and overwatering can lead to limp stems, which can be damaging and even fatal for your plants if not addressed promptly.
