Rattlesnake Calathea Light Needs

Rattlesnake Calathea grows best in a space with bright indirect light, where the sun rays are diffused, and can also adapt to spaces with bright direct light, where the sunlight streams inside directly. Avoid placing it in spaces with low light or spaces without natural sunlight to keep its characteristic vibrant colors intact.
Native to the tropical forests, Rattlesnake Calathea flourishes in medium, indirect light. A small amount of direct sun early on is acceptable; however, midday or afternoon sunlight should be evaded altogether. An east-facing window is a fantastic option, while south and west-facing windows can also do the job, provided curtains are used or placed several feet away from any direct lighting source.

How Often Should I Water My Rattlesnake Calathea?

If you want your rattlesnake plant to thrive, ensure the soil remains evenly moist. However, it's important not to let it sit in too much water or become overly dry. To avoid this, check the surface of the soil and water when necessary - once a week (or more in dry climates) should do it. Self-watering is the best option for Rattlesnake Calathea. To avoid overwatering, underwatering, or simply avoid such a frequent watering schedule, using a self-watering pot will allow the Rattlesnake Calathea to absorb just the right amount of water it needs without having to worry about watering it yourself. With easyplant, watering your Rattlesnake Calathea is simple. Make sure to check the easyplant reservoir once a month and fill it when empty, and you're all set!
