Rattlesnake Calathea - Prayer Plant

The Rattlesnake Calathea is sometimes referred to as a “prayer plant”. This is because its leaves are said to follow the sun’s movement throughout the day and are also known to close up at night, resembling a pair of praying hands!

Where does it come from?

The Rattlesnake Calathea is native to the rainforests of Brazil. 

Plant Care Tips: Rattlesnake Calathea 

  • The Rattlesnake Calathea enjoys bright indirect light. Avoid placing it in direct sunlight and this can cause the leaves to fade.
  • Try keeping it in humid environments and misting it regularly.
  • Water every 1-2 weeks and ensure that the soil is consistently moist. 
  • Avoid draughts and provide suitable ventilation. 
  • Keep this plant at temperatures of 18-23°C.
  • Fertilise once a month during the growing season (late spring to early August). 
  • Use a damp cloth to clean dust and dirt from your Rattlesnake’s leaves. Do not use leaf shine as this will damage your plant. 
  • When it’s time to repot your plant, you can propagate it by dividing it into two.

Pets: Safe around pets.

Rattlesnake Calathea - Common Issues and Questions 

Why are the leaves on my Rattlesnake Calathea curling? 

If your Rattlesnake Calathea’s leaves begin to curl and wilt, it may be a sign that you are underwatering your plant. Be sure to water your plant every 1-2 weeks and ensure that the soil is consistently moist. 

My Rattlesnake Calathea has yellow leaves. What am I doing wrong? 

It is completely normal for older leaves to yellow and drop off over time. However, yellowing leaves can also be a sign of overwatering. You should only be watering your Rattlesnake plant every 1-2 weeks. 

What does my Rattlesnake plant have brown leaves and spots? 

Brown spots can be a sign that your Rattlesnake Calathea has a fungal infection. This can be treated by removing the infected area and treating your plant with a fungicide. Brown leaves may indicate a mineral build-up from watering with tap water. You can combat this problem by watering your Rattlesnake with distilled water instead.

Common pests

The Rattlesnake Calathea does not tend to attract many pests. However, it can be susceptible to spider mites. This can be treated by spraying your plant with pesticide weekly.

Shipping and Returns

We can ship to anywhere within Canada. However, it may take longer for you to receive your products if you live in a remote region, such as the Eastern Provinces, especially as we ship from BC.

Please allow up to five business days for your plant to be delivered. If you live in one of the Eastern Provinces, this may take slightly longer, typically around seven business days.

Please also note that tax rates vary dependent on province. These too will be calculated at checkout to comply with provincial laws.

We are happy to return any defective items you may have received. Please get in touch with our customer service team at info@bloomboxclub.ca and they will be more than happy to assist!

If your item is found to be defective or damaged, you will be entitled to a full refund. In many cases, we will not require the item be delivered back to us, however, in some circumstances we may request that this it is. If this is the case, our customer service team will gladly help you through this process.

You should expect to receive your refund within four weeks of giving your package to the return shipper, however, in many cases you will receive a refund more quickly. This time period includes the transit time for us to receive your return from the shipper (5 to 10 business days), the time it takes us to process your return once we receive it (3 to 5 business days), and the time it takes your bank to process our refund request (5 to 10 business days).
