As a group of plants belonging to the plant family Marantaceae, the Calathea has numerous species. The Calathea originates from the Americas. This particular variety Calathea Lancifolia Insignis is commonly known as the Rattlesnake plant. It grows attractive, wavy, pale green leaves with dark blotches, perfect as a statement piece.

Similar to Calathea Rattlesnake, Calathea Exotica has narrow, feather-like foliage on long red stems. C. Exotica grows light grey foliage with striking green stripes and maroon undersides.

Calatheas grow in forms of a non-invasive, creeping rhizome. You can simply divide them by cutting them into groups of plantlets with a healthy root system, just like you would with the snake plants. 

Calatheas can survive lower light environments, making them ideas as indoor plants. Avoid roots to be sitting in water and provide frequent watering in soil.
