Botanical Name: Geoppertia insignis
With oblong-shaped, dark green leaves contrasted by a deep purple undersides and rich red stems, the Rattlesnake Plant is one of the most ornamental Calathea varieties. It's name comes from the markings that look like snakeskin on the plant's leaves. This plant is exotic and beautiful but needs frequent misting to stay healthy, so we recommend it primarily for experienced indoor plant caretakers.
