Calathea Lancifolia, also known as the Rattlesnake Plant, is a tropical houseplant with stunning foliage, featuring long, lance-shaped leaves that are dark green with light green stripes and have a purple underside. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Calathea Lancifolia prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. Calathea Lancifolia likes to stay moist, but be careful not to overwater it, as this can cause root rot.

  3. Humidity: Calathea Lancifolia likes high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-75°F (15-24°C).

  5. Soil: Calathea Lancifolia prefers a well-draining potting mix that is rich in organic matter. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and vermiculite.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any dead or yellowing leaves.

  8. Propagation: Calathea Lancifolia can be propagated by division. Carefully separate the plant into two or more sections, making sure each section has roots and leaves, and plant them in separate pots.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Watch out for pests like spider mites and mealybugs, and treat them promptly if you notice any. Also, be careful not to overwater the plant, as this can lead to root rot.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children as it's toxic when ingested. Calathea Lancifolia is a relatively high-maintenance plant that requires some attention, but its stunning foliage is well worth the effort.
