With wavy leaves paired with surprising hues of purple hidden under its leaves, the Calathea Rattlesnake is an unexpected beauty. Bringing texture and flair to complement any decor, this Calathea variety is an exotic statement plant.

Native to Brazil’s tropical climate, this Calathea enjoys warm and humid conditions. Water and humidity go hand in hand for the Rattlesnake — it requires consistent watering that keeps its soil moist. In addition to careful watering, it will benefit from regular misting to boost its humidity. Thoughtful care will ensure that your Calathea plant stays vibrant, colorful, and healthy.

Unlike buying a plant from a box store, your Bloomscape plant arrives fully-grown as pictured and pre-potted. We spent a lot of time selecting pots that not only look great but also have optimal drainage, complete with matching saucer. All you have to do is unpack your plant and find the perfect spot for it in your home.

Fully Grown & Healthy

Fully Grown + Healthy

Most of the time when you buy houseplants, they are partially grown and kept in less than ideal conditions. With Bloomscape, our houseplants are grown and cared for in our greenhouses by plant experts until the day we ship them to you. That way, your plants arrive fully-grown, healthy, and ready for you to enjoy.
