Do Rattlesnake Calatheas Attract Snakes?

October 26, 2020

Wait...do Rattlesnake Calatheas attract snakes? Luckily, no, they do not. The name “Rattlesnake” comes from the wavy, spotted purple and green leaves that resemble a snake. These unique beauties are like many other Calatheas, in that at night, their leaves fold up vertically.

Rattlesnake Calatheas are a tropical plant that can grow outdoors in USDA Hardiness Zones 10 and above (that’s us, South Florida!). If you plan to keep yours indoors, these plants like bright, indirect light. The best way to water these plants is using distilled or rain water, as regular tap water can have too many minerals that will turn the leaf tips brown. Don’t worry about repotting your Rattlesnake Calathea too quickly, these plants grow consistently but not too quickly.
