4" Calathea Rattlesnake
The Calathea Rattlesnake, scientifically known as Calathea Lancifolia, is a stunning tropical plant admired for its unique foliage pattern and vibrant colors. The Calathea Rattlesnake features elongated, lance-shaped leaves that grow upright from the base of the plant. The foliage has a velvety texture, further enhancing its ornamental value. The leaves of the Calathea Rattlesnake exhibit a unique characteristic known as nyctinasty, which means they fold up at night and unfold during the day. This rhythmic movement is a natural response to light and darkness, making the plant even more fascinating to observe.
